Can't open filler pipe opening

We just bought a 1964 Globetrotter and can't seem to get the cap off of the water filler. Doesit require a special tool? We've tried "liquid wrench" and other tools and it just won't budge. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.
I had to use a hammer and chisel to et the filler cap off ours. I replaced the steel cap with a PVC cap, just so I didn't have that problem again.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
