Sportsmobile E350 6.0 diesel won't shift

Help! Van is stuck at a friends house and won't shift. It starts normally and the shifter moves through the gears but they won't engage. When the shifter is moved back into Park there is some grinding. It was last run 4 days ago and drove from San Diego to LA with no problems.

2006 E350 R/B 4wd, Sportsmobile suspension, 6.0 Powerstroke diesel

Transfer case probably got bumper into neutral. The grinding means the output shaft is spinning when you put it in park.

Been there, done that (on multiple vehicles).

Duh! That makes perfect sense. I had been sleeping in the van for 4 days and could have easily bumped the shifter. Unfortunately I had to abandon Clifford (big red van) and won't be able to confirm it for 5 days. Thanks.
