But as I said, the plug is tight enough on its own and I definitely have both clamps "open" when I'm removing it.
Would a white lithium grease product be ok and not reactive badly with the plastic plug? I searched online first and it looks like I'm one of the few with this issue as couldn't find any other posts!
I have the same cam lock sewer hose connector on our Sunseeker, and have experienced the same difficulties on occasion.
First…..thoroughly wash/rinse the entire rubber connectors both on the motorhome AND the hose. Then apply a light coating of plumber’s grease as has been mentioned if desired. The problem will repeat itself if any grit/dirt enters the connection area, which is more prone to happen with grease.
BTW…..Today is warm and sunny enough…..I just went out with bucket of hot water, washed all the cam lock parts….and the entire operation works and fits perfect….even without grease, which is my preference.
