I think a lot of people are misreading the problem.
The OP's problem is the hose is too LOOSE and he cant tighten it down , not too tight.

...And I think only a couple responses tagged the very simple solution - the OD of the elbow is simply too small.

You are using the wrong fitting, get the right fitting and the hose will slip on with little difficulty. Do not use 90^ fittings for waste hose, Murphy will visit you at the worst time.

The fitting should NOT have any barbs in them they are smooth and while snug do NOT require expand, heat, boiling water to make up.

This is not something to screw up in a hurry, you don't want to go back and re-due in your lifetime, do it right.

Buy PVC adapters to make up a fitting if you cant use over the counter fittings.

So does a heat gun but the OP's problem is the hose is too big for the fittings. It slips on easily but he can't tighten it enough.

The best products I have found for getting hoses onto fittings are "hose lube" from West Marine or "radiator hose grease" from the auto parts store.

While any of dozens of products will lubricate the hoses, there's no guarantee they won't either harm the hose or glue it in place and prevent removal later.

Dishwashing liquid (Dawn etc) has long been the marine industry's only recommended hose lubricant because it's water soluble, slippery and dries out fairly quickly...doesn't leave a permanently "greased" connection to come apart. K-Y is a surgical lubricant that's exceptionally slippery, also water soluble and also dries out rather quickly...Plus, it's also inexpensive and readily available from any drugstore. K-Y will not harm the hose nor glue it place preventing removal later....either of which would have long ago killed the market for its most common household use.

All I know is that I was in the Port Townsend Safeway the other day and over the intercom came "price check on 5 gallon pail of KY". I looked over, and yep. It was Hollywood. Had a lot of plumbing stuff to do I guess.

got rid of the hose 20yrs ago (except for 6" at the toilet and 6" at the tank) and replaced it with ABS pipe...... heaper, faster, easier and the smell never comes through like the hose.
