Question Anti sieze for hoses

In the process of learning about anti sieze I was taking radiator hoses off and thought "Wouldn't it be nice if there was the equivalant for these stubborn time eaters." Anybody have any ideas or thoughts of what I can do?

5 speed '91 190E 2.6 320,000 mi. (new car, fast, smooth as silk six, couldn't find any more Peugeots)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.5l Turbo Diesel 266,000 mi. (old car, fast for a diesel, had 2 others)
5 speed '01 Jetta V6 (new wifes car, pretty quick)
5 speed '85 Peugeot 505 2.2l Turbo Gas 197,000 mi. (wifes car, faster, sadly gone just short of 200k )
5 speed '83 Yamaha 750 Maxim 14,000 mi. (fastest)
0 speed 4' x 8' 1800 lb Harbor Freight utility trailer (only as fast as what's pulling it)

Is there a paste version of Sil-glyd? The spray might work just as well. I don't know how it holds up to heat though.

Yea there is this stuff called magic lube. Its a real thick silicone based grease. You can get it at pool supply stores. I use it on my pool equipment valves and orings. Really sticky and thick and slippery.
