Heat gun works every time and you don't scold your self, remember most boat plumbing is done whilst standing on your head with your knee in your ear.

Re: Vinyl sanitation hose: How to get it over tight fittings

Thanks for the advice. This started because that funky smell that would greet me when opening up the boat. I agree that we wouldn't put up with this at home, so why accept it as a part of sailing? After scaling the learning curve, we've replaced the toilet, and now we're replacing all the hose. We will certainly use the ten-dollar per foot odersafe sanitation hose. No need to be cheap here. We'll double up on the hose clamps and soften the ends in hot water or a heat gun. On a different note, I stopped going to physical therapy for a frozen shoulder. Working the bilges of my boat is so much more effective.
