Sewer hose connectors hard to connect/disconect

The bayonet fittings of the sewer hose have become difficult to disconnect from the pin on the connecting fitting. At first the bayonet fittings fit the opposing pins fine, the fittings slowly became more difficult to secure and release, having to resort to pliers to secure & a screw driver to release the coupled fittings. I have cleaned the fittings, used a dremel on the bayonets so the pins on the connecting fitting will lock & unlock easier, Vaseline on the pins.... A PIA when dealing with the sewer connections.
Any help is appreciated.

Any reviews on the Camco drain hose wrench 3975 or the Rhinoflex drain hose wrench? Again mixed reviews and will either one of them work with the Dominator sewer hose?

Try vaseline on the rubber gaskets where the connectors go together. You would be surprised how much friction plastic and dry rubber can create.

X2.
Even good ol' axle grease works and so does a quick shot of silicone spray.

Also, try replacing the "O" ring gaskets. They become harder with age, and difficult to release.

Regards,

Thanks for the information.

Anyone use or have used a drain wrench by Camco (3975) or the Rhinoflex drain wrench, will either one of them fit a Dominator hose?

Vaseline works on the rubber seal.
