Can't remove end caps anymore

I can no longer remove the end cap on the cylinder, nor take the cylinder off the wired endcap. I’m a little worried about trying to apply too much force, but wondering if this is a common problem. When I first ran the ROV I had trouble keeping the one end cap on, and now have the opposite problem.

The real reason I want to do it is so that I can rotate the cylinder. I have an unfortunate scuff right dead center to the camera.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you have not opened the main tube in a long time the grease and o-rings can set and be difficult to remove. The best way we have found is to get a small gap formed and work around the circumference of the endcap with a small flathead screw driver.

I hope this helps. If you continue to have issues I would urge you to post this on our Forum.
