Tool to separate sewer hose connections?

Doesn't happen all the time, but man, sometimes I simply cannot get my sewer hose extensions to come a part. I end up just putting it in my storage container and say screw it. lol!

Is there such a tool that will easily allow you to separate waste hose sections?

And while we are at it, how about a tool to separate the dongle from the power cord. Evidently I got weak muscles. haha! But in the winter months, it's even harder to get these things separated.

Thanks for any tips, tricks and if you must, go ahead, mock my muscles!

You may try a strap wrench

I had the same problem so I just took a file and filed down the tips a small amount. I’m talking about the tips on the hose, not the nipples it connects to. Do a little filing, try the connection and if still to tight file a little more. Take your time and it will be much easier but still snap into place.

I switched to the waste management cam lock hose. Have been using it two years now. Super easy to use, smooth inner lining keeps hose cleaner.

What dalford said looks great. I have used an oil filter wrench, but the next time I leave it behind, I'm ordering the Camco tool.

I saw these at Walmart several months ago. This is one of those things that's an "insurance tool". If you don't buy it, you'll need it. If you do buy it you'll never need it. Haven't needed one so far, but we all know Murphy's Law.
