I had similar issues with my 550.. especially when trailering.. it was similar to parking an auto trans. car on a hill, it's called torque lock on a car.. not sure if it would be the same thing or not with the prowler. The biggest thing to remember is to not try and force it in either gear (as tempting as it may be). What worked for me was to either rock it front to back (if possible) or to give it just a small shot of gas and try and move it.. don't rev the engine up a lot, just enough to hear a small difference over idle. Colder weather sometimes made it even more difficult too for some reason, so let it get good and warm before shifting. I'm not a real expert but I wouldn't recommend beafing up the linkeage too much as you may break something more expensive down the line. I think it's engineered to bend before it takes out the goods inside the tranny.
Hope this helps,
