Sewage Hose attaching and removing?

We have just bought a new Clipper 17FQ trailer and we are loving it. Today, I learned from my husband how to hitch it to our Jeep and I towed it to the waste disposal site. The only trouble I had, however, was attaching and removing the hose from the trailer. I am 5.2" and slight of weight and could not find the strength to twist the cap on or off. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a trick or tool that I might use? I am hoping to take the trailer out by myself some day. Everything else was manageable (learning how to reverse is another issue, but I'm practicing!) Thanks for your suggestions!

I use grease or Vaseline on the connector to make it turn easier.

The wrench will help too. Do a google search on "RV sewer hose wrench"
