Suburban heater

I have had the misfortune of having to replace the suburban heater on a Alpine 40MD. Three of the back hoses and the propane are hooked up.It seems I am having a lot of problems getting the two side hoses on. I have cut a hole next to the 50 amp electric hookup and con not seem to turn the hoses enough.

My question is, is there another way to get at the hoses.
Thanks in advance Steve

PS I would like to meet the engineer!!!!!!

You can slide the internal furnace out of the cabinet before you install the case. As I recall it was easier to hookup the hoses by reaching inside the metal cabinet. Send me a PM if you would like to talk it thru.
