My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Make sure all clamps are removed fully or loosened fully.If the hose is stuck to where it will not move off of the ports it is connected to in some cases you can use a hose pick to go in between the hose and pipe it connects to and work the pick around it to loosen the hose then remove it from there.If this is not how this is set up hre or was already attempted let me know.
