Red face spare tire release?

I have a '95 Airstream, a 34' Limited with near horizontal propane tanks. Yesterday I needed the spare that "dangled" beneath the tanks, secured by a wire cord and retaining device in the wheel. I could not figure a way to release the cord. Previous Airstreams had a metal frame to hold the spare. I assumed that what was what I had. But, alas, no. (Finally got the flat repaired.)

There should be a pulley you put the jack handle into, and lower the tire by rotating it, kind of like they have on pickups and SUVs.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
