Re: new trick for removing head hoses!
For the heat and cold recommendations above, I would see a potential for waiting until freezing temps to keep fluids from moving around and heating the hose at the connection to get them off. However, the entire system was winterized with -100 deg antifreeze, so it's going to flow. Yuk.
Unfortunately, there is already some "ooze" in the bilge from the leaking tank, so I'm not so concerned about spilling for that reason. It will all need to be thoroughly cleaned anyway. I'm more concerned about just getting the hoses off so they can be used again and trying to stay as sanitary as possible. Not looking forward to this one.
