Stubborn Slinky

I have a Valterra Compartment Hose in order to get out of my Surf Side wet bay. I connect the Valterra to my Rhino from there.
My problem is that I am having trouble getting the Valterra to detach from the sewer outlet, and again having same problem getting it off the Rhino. Any way to lubricate to make it easier to get off, or any other suggestions.
By the way, the reason for the compartment hose is that the Rhino connections do not fit through the outlet in the bay. I have filed the nubs down, but it is still a nuisance.
Thanks for any thoughts.

Neil, Lin, and our furry companions, Ashby and Cody. 06 National Surf Side.

I just use carry (3) 10 foot sections of Valterra and use what I need. I also have a Rhino that usally stays at home. Mine is also hard to connect to the Valterra and I really never need more than 30 feet

Vasolien, however there is a tool for the job, Two of them in fact.

I used to have a plastic "Wrench" that was designed for removal of caps and/or hoses from the dump outlet, It worked well but alas, I lost it.

I also have a strap wrench, I got it at Home Depot as I recall, (I have 2 of 'em) they do quite well when I have to use them. However they do need a lot of room to work, Not all wet bays have that much room.
Home is where I park it!
