Hot Tub repair


Long story short, Pipes in the hot tub froze last winter, I ordered the replacement manifolds, It is 2 In pcv with 6 barbed nippels that go to the jets with a 3/4" clear flex. I am having touble getting the clear tubing onto the barbed fittings, any ideas for an easy way to do this?

Personally I'd try vaseline, plumber's grease, dish soap, anything slippery.
