Surprising how much hate a little fitting like that can build up.

I do this quite frequently and was about to mention it earlier, but got sidetracked.

I too had problems and used the wd 40. Part of the problem for me was when the dealer winterized out camper, the ports weren't properly winterized. There is an 3/32 -1/8 diameter pin in there. Water would collect around that on and rust over the winter and be hard to move and then leak come spring once water pressure was applied to the system

I spoke with the original owner about it...they never used it. I'll bet the problem you described was also affecting this one. It was locked-up solid 'till I removed the fitting and filled the female end w/WD40...
