Getting sanitation hose over fittings

Good day all:

I am installing a new holding tank and replacing the sanitation hoses. I am using Triton sanitation hose (supposedly one of the most flexible), and I find it next to impossible to get it to go over the barbed fittings. Both the 3/4" intake and 1-1/2" outflow are equally as difficult. Any suggestions on making this task easier? Is there a lubricant available which aids slipping on the hoses?

Thanks in advance!
