Are you stating that the foot (or hand) valve moves but the seal at the bottom of the tank stays closed, or that the valve wants to move but the seal is stuck?

Never heard of the ball valve getting stuck (unless it broke). Your problem may be in the linkage to the valve. In which case the toilet should be removed from the floor, flipped over and then you can gain access to the inner workings. RV toilets are not like household toilets but any plumber should be able to figure it out. They are not that complicated.

thanks- disaster resolved. Turns out my family was using excess tp/not enough h20. won't go into graphic detail but result was stoppage. Got it unstuck, filled tank with plain h20- now everything is ok. I appreciate the feedback, since I'm usually here without the hubby during the week.
