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!

unscrew top knob
turn gun upside down and shoot the remaing air in the hose out
then pull slide check back and remove it
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)
Will it ever be over? I replied.

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!!

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.
