Okay, first things first. You need to set the emergency brake and block the wheels so the RV can't roll. Now remove the cable from the transmission lever so it is free. If the shifter is still hard to move then follow up to the other end of the cable and remove it from the shifter crank end. At this point it is likely the shifter will move easily and you just need to replace that cable.
