Luckily he seems to have had that done just before it was parked. All of the hoses with the exception of the "dreinage" hose looked almost new.
I recommend you get yourself a set of angle picks from Harbor Freight, the black handles not the orange. I slide a pick in and just use it to work around the nipple while gently pulling the hose. Even ancient hoses will pop off easily that way. I have spent more than my fair share of time cussing hoses and this changed my life.
