The sewer cap on our TT gets really tight...don't really want to wrap my hands (even in plastic gloves) around it to get a good enough grip to get enough torque to get it to come off...had an idea...

Is there such a thing as a replacement sewer cap with outer 'spokes' or handles? Seems like that would be a lot easier to use...if there isn't one on the market, could I maybe super-glue some spoke-like handles to ours?

Just thinkin'

spray the inside of the cap with silcone spray also the reciever side, for a try. or your cap might be warped.

Replacement like this cap with handle makes it easier to remove.

Thanks, everyone! that's not exactly how i viewed it (envisioned something with spokes justting out from the perimeter) but this IS exactly perfect as a solution....I KNEW there had to be something like that!

Moderator...my issue is resolved...so, you can close out this thread far as I'm concerned but feel free to leave it open if you think it'll help others

I spray my sewer cap with motorcycle chain lube spray which is an o ring lubricant.

It also works for Ford pickup squawking plastic door latches.

What you need is a pair of pliers.. Like the ones from Harbor Freight below

They are sold for oil filters but work for several other things. For example if you get the "Axle Lock" device to allow a Front wheel drive car to be towed 4 down.. It comes with one to operate the lock collar.

They come in a couple of lengths. Don't much matter which.

Or, just grind the groove down a little until it feels the way you want it to.

I drilled a tiny pin hole in mine so that the pressure doesn't build up.

So how do you connect and disconnec the sewer hose after you take the cap off? Cause the sewer hose is going to be a lot dirtier then the outside of that cap. Try Soap and water.
