ford 2016 450 stuck in park

We have 1000 miles on our RV have not taken a trip yet and can not get it out of park. Was told it could be the brake shift interlock. We know it must be repaired but don't want it towed. First we were told it is under the black plate under the steering column (below ignition), then in front of it the lick plate which I believe is the long strip of dash behind the steering wheel and above the brake - we are totally confused. If it is the lower panel, we can find the screws to remove it. thanks, we are frustrated new RV'ers.

Do you have battery power?
Key on?
Do the brake lights work?

I assume you are pushing the brake?

Did you try turning the wheel fully one way or the other. It might possibly be jammed. Especially if against a stop or something.

Both cheap checks

Yes - we are pushing the brake and the wheels turn. We drove it home from the dealer and this was the first time we were going to use it.

My immediate thought. Turn the wheel and while holding it turned, see if it will shift.

Is it very easy to get to and release the brake shift interlock, or not something we should not attempt?

You can google it. I did. I assume it is column shift? Or floor ?
