The PROPER way to remove hoses, is to take an open ended box wrench to them. there are even special tubing wrenches that prevent stripping. usually to remove the really stubborn fittings I use a really high quality adjustable crecent wrench, and tighten it down to the fitting as best as I can. if you haven't fubared the fitting already, if you HAVE... get out the vice grips, and replace the hose after you remove it.
