That sound more like the slide release for the gen set, than anything to do with the air tanks.
The lanyards on my tanks were coiled up near the tanks, there was enough length to route them so they would, not cut or abraid any hoses , to a place where I could pull on the lanyard with my awning rod.
You just need to be carefull with the lenght to make sure the end of the lanyard can't be snagged on the ground or by a tire.
