    I had a similar problem with my water tank cover, a real mare to remove. Although my cap is slightly different, I now open using an old set of vernier calipers that I have, I use the internal measuring jaws for opening and, tightening up.

    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    😂😂 not so much cleaning but when I frame down I drop a bath towel in and soak up all the water and I cleaned the little censor things that tell me how much water I have in as they were not working.

    what about smearing a little vaseline around the aperture?, usually helps in a tight situation, for me anyway.

    Either of these might do if there is enough strap to go around the cap. The second item can be turned by a spanner or a 1/2” sq drive, useful if there is not enough room for the handle of the first.
    Chain wrenches are better for gripping oily things but can be destructive.

    See attached image, try an adjustable spanner on a couple of the red highlighted areas, spanner usually have a hole at end of handle, where you can put a screwdriver through for extra purchase.
