Are you sure you are using the correct male fitting ("plug")? There are three main types out there; automotive (short nose), industrial (medium nose) and ARO (long nose). They are not interchangeable.

Our 2018 Newmar coach came with the "Industrial" style couplers as did our 2014 Newmar. Brands really don't matter that much; type does. Personally, I like the air chucks from Milton Industries.

Take a look here for some info on air chuck types.

As noted in my earlier post, both our 2014 and 2018 Newmar came with the industrial style.

Have you been able to resolve your air chuck problem, @texskeet? Inquiring minds are curious.

Forgot to mention earlier, but I carry home-made adapters with an Industrial-style plug and an Automotive-style coupler, along with the reverse combination. That way, if I ever encounter a situation where there's a compatibility issue, I can cope by using the appropriate "adapter."
