Removing Reese Gooseball from F350

I have a 2018 F350 CC LB SRW 4x4 and installed a Reese Gooseball August 2018. I tried removing the Gooseball a couple weeks ago with no luck. I raised the small lever at top of ball with no luck. This is the first time Iíve tried to remove it since installing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Regards Ron

if the Ford GN hitch works like my Ram you not only need to raise the lever but also turn it 90 degrees to release the ball keepers in the ball shaft

It might be rusted in place as I think was eluded to by the previous post. Can you rotate the ball in the socket? If you can its not rusted tight. Raise the lever, rotate the lever and perhaps tap on it lightly to free things up.

I know it's a different gooseneck ball locking system but when installing ,

I spray my Curt goose ball & my Curt X-Rail with white lithium but sometimes have to take a hammer handle & knock it up from bottom to get started out.
