Companion Slider Removal

We had a companion slider hitch installed 2 months ago when we bought a 5ver. Now it's time to start cutting firewood here in the mountains of SW Colorado and would like to remove the slider. I loosened the draw down bolt, then pulled the latch pin handle out but can't get it to turn and unlock the latch pin. Am I missing something or is it possible the slide is in a bind? Any help would be appreciated. FWIW I built a stand on casters(each rated at 175lbs) to pull the slider out on to so I can move it around the garage.
Oh yes it's a model 3400 slider.

On my non slider companion, I have to loosen u bolts as well. But im not sure the newer ones still work that way. I'd think if you can pull the turnover system pin out, the hitch should pop loose. Maybe a second person helping if you haven't tried that yet ?

Mine is the new model and doesn't have u-bolts. The directions state to pull out and turn clockwise to release the latch. I just can't get mine to turn to release the latch.

FIXED! I hooked on it with the camper, raised it and it popped right out. I guess that's the easy way.
