    Yeah the motor on the transfer case most likely. Happens all the time. Sometimes you can tap it with mallet and it'll move. Worst case can pull it off and manually turn it out of 4wd if you have to

    Not to be a jerk, but why would you have to be in four wheel drive, much less four low to move a small sail boat?

    Thanks I got a small mallet...BTW I am a 67 yr. old female, who isn't totally ignorant to these issues....but I found this site...what a blessing. Thanks. I was also going to try disconnecting the battery cables...read that somewhere on here.

    Did you tap on the motor or no?

    Glad it worked out for you, at least temporarily.
