replacing accumulator on 1999 Chev Suburban

I am replacing compressor, accumulator and orifice tube on a 1999 Chev Suburban. Having real trouble getting nuts loose on line into and out of the accumulator. They just won't budge. Anybody have have tips on getting those fittings loose?

Thanks,

This is my first post here.

try - a little heat(propane torch)
need long wrecches-of correct size-get a good hold-& use a 'heavy/jerk' type motion.
don't forget to flush the condener-& lines to remove debri from old compressor.
