If they are rubber, and were put on with soap? they may well be rotted in place. Slitting them with a razor knife, or slicing a piece off (slicing paralell to the hose surface so there's just a thin spot left on the fitting) to allow you to twist it free and then "unroll" it form the fitting, may work better than trying to pull it off. Expect some cleanup with metal wool may be necessary to get all the crud off.
