Can't get sewer connection loose

Hi! On my last trip solo, I couldnít get the sewer connection loose where it attaches to rv . Iím a 65 year old woman, but evidently without enough hand strength. I have a gate valve, so I was trying to keep that from spinning while I tried to break loose the connector. I tried soapy water, some lube. Finally someone came and helped me. Is there an effective tool to use for this or another secret method? Thanks.

The oil filter wrench is better than the Rhino. I have both.

Try putting plumber faucet grease on the surfaces. It will slide much easier. It is a white grease and water resistant.

Put some on the gate valve as well if you can reach it from inside the pipe.
