Riverstone Legacy spare tire carrier

Would anyone happen to know how to remove the spare tire on a Riverstone 39FB? I am familiar with the standard crank down type but this one has left me stumped.

I actually haven't tried it, but when we did the walkthrough the service manager said a lever would activate some kind of a slide mechanism that releases the spare tire holder and pushes it out to the side, curbside I would imagine (hope).
I could have a closer look tomorrow and take some pictures if you're interested.

Pictures would be great. I must have zoned out during my walk-through.
I am just managing to get a handle on all the light switches and now I have to deal with a lever

Thanks for your help.

Here you go.
First you pull this pin on the driver's side to unlock the spare tire carrier.
Next, you go over to the passenger side, grab the spare tire carrier and drag it along the rail out from underneath the trailer.
That's it.

Thanks. That looks pretty user friendly.

With any luck I won't need to use it.
