I recently got a remote......new to it.I wanted to know why its so hard to take my tank off even I unscrew the top knob.I really want to avoid useing the slide check just so it will last alittle longer.I also wanted to know for all the guys useing remotes right now......is there a certain order you need to follow to tank your tank off without damaging your equipment?If there is post.If you know why this is happening please tell me how to fix it.

When you unscrew the knob you shut the tank off, but there is still pressure in the remote line. There are two ways to handle it:
1. Open the slide check and relieve the pressure, then the tank comes off nice and easy.
2. Unscrew the tank with all your might, potentially loose a tank o-ring as the pressure escapes past it, and relieve the pressure in the remote line.

What I'm getting at is that either way, the pressure in the remote line will be relieved. The second option is potentially costly, and harder than heck!

Here's the steps I take to remove my gun & tank from the remote line:
1. Unscrew the knob
2. Close the slide check
3. Disconnect the gun
4. Open the slide check
5. Unscrew the tank

If I have my tank in a back pack:
1. Close the slide check
2. Disconnect the gun
3. Keep ahold of the end of the remote!
4. Unscrew the knob
5. Open the slide check
6. Unscrew the tank

You have to be careful when the tank is on and the remote is not connected to the gun, it can turn into a very painful whip!

Hope this helps man! :dodgy:

Last time we played one of the guys left it open.. OOPS! It started to flail and hiss all over the place.

In order:
unscrew top knob
turn gun upside down and shoot the remaing air in the hose out
then pull slide check back and remove it

In game:
pull slide check back
I wouldn't worry about this. Useing the slide check won't hurt it.

Solution to question:
If you are having trouble taking out the tank then it is one of two things
1.The hose is still pressureized
2.You are turning it the wrong way(yes it happens to everyone)

do you use the lubericant? when i picked up mine from the store the lady told me how to take care of it. its essential for making it last a long time. she said oil it every 8 times it is used. thats what i do. i cant use it the o rings are damaged im picking up some today but why dont you want to use your slide check? it makes it so much easier.

It would take a hammer to break your slide man. The orings inside it are just tank orings. If you lube it like your gun..they wont tear up. Big deal if they do. So replace the orings same as your tank. Takes all of 5 min.

Use your equipment. Not using your slide check is like barrel tagging all day so you won't waist paint....might work for a while, but your not using whats in your hands!!

If you're wondering how to maintain the remote line with slide check, see my video: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=TAQBzIuy_vI

Squirrel Commander and Poonisher have already expressed what I consider to be the best order. The slide check really is the best way to relieve pressure in the remote line. If you didn't want to use it, there's no point in having it in the first place.

I use ion grease on the orings of my slide checks. It lasts longer then marker oil and makes it easier to release the pressure in the hose.
