I think the topic has been covered well, but I just want to drop my 2 cents in on the glove vs no glove issue. My wife and I act as a team -- she stays clean, I stay "less clean". I do not wear gloves for any of this. I do take my watch and wedding band off. When we pull up to dump, I handle the actual physical connection of hose and pulling valves and dumping. While I'm doing this, my wife uses a bleach spray (clorox cleanup specifically) to spray down anything that I'm going to touch that may have been contaminated by someone else (end of rinse hose and handle that turns on rinse hose most commonly). I handle turning on the hose and rinsing out my dump hose. Anything I've touched she sprays again (you are welcome). My wife pours my pre-mixed "Geo Method Solution" into the toilet and flushes after I've closed the valves so we're ready for next time. After I stow my dump hose my wife sprays my hands with the clorox cleanup. She passes me paper towels to dry off and opens a ziplock that I deposit the paper towels into. Then she squirts alcohol sanitizer onto my hands.
I work in medicine -- in all honesty, I'd be doing all the same to my hands if I was wearing gloves and it's all precautionary. Unless something goes horribly wrong or you are a slob, your risk for contamination is quite minimal despite the dirty job at hand!
That looks good to me. Only suggestion might be the installation of tank flushers. I did this. They are like sprinkler heads easily installed through the side of your holding tanks. You hook up a hose to them. Easier than haulin the flush wand into the RV and does a superb job. I think they are called "Flush King" Can not recall. Been using them for several years.

I'm really new at this and haven't even made first trip yet. We have a Htt and I would like a detailed explanation on how to rinse the blackwater tank. ie: Dumping buckets of water down the head...(Head?) I promise not to hold up the line. Thanks much...safe travelling.
