Fitting an Elephants trunk, advice?
 
Anyone with any tips on how to fit a replacement trunk.

Cut the old one off and got a new 110mm trunk but cannot manage to slide it far enough onto the hard pipe. Chamfered the leading edge of the pipe, used washing up liquid, even tried grinding the pipe to reduce the circumference slightly but still unable to slide it on more than an inch.

Any suggestions?

Heat the trunk and chill the pipe? If the pipe is still on the boat ice cubes in apoly bag stuffed inside. Then Boiling water from a kettle on the trunk?

Hair dryer or hot air gun on trunk works well.but make sure you put the correct one back in the bedroom.
