Why would you release the jaws with out your landing gear down? 

This is how I do it
Once you have the rig where you want it -

1. lower the front legs, enough to take the weight off the truck.

2. open the jaws, disconnect the emergency brake cable and unplug the 7 pin connector.

3. pull the truck out

Your B&W hitch will have a hole in the center towards the front of the hitch. This is to allow you to open the lever and drop the pin in it. This allows the jaws to release as the pin comes away from the front of the jaws. My B&W was the smoothest hitching and unhitch that I have ever had once I figured it out.
