i have more questions. would capping the ends promote growth from the damp/wet inside of the hose? should the hose be filled with a mild bleach solution to disinfect it for a half hour before use, and then flushed?

i was told by an RV service tech to avoid leaving the white hose in the sun as it promotes mold growth.

ok experts, teach me! :-)

If you use water that has been treated with CL, and you hook up frequently, Just normal sanitary precautions should be ok. If the hose has not been used for some time, then dump some CL (bleach, Clorox ) into the hose and flush it before you hook up.

The best advice so far is not to mix up the handling of sewage hoses and fresh water hoses. Wear desposable gloves and wash handa often. The thing about these bugs - if you think they are there, they probally are.
