Which Neutral "button" for 4WD Low????

I just got a '14 Overland Diesel 4x4 and I'm confused about which Neutral to use when shifting into 4WD Low. The manual refers to Neutral as the little button below the Select Terrain knob. What about Neutral in the actual gear shifter??

I'm confused about when to use which neutral and the order of operations for shifting from High to Low. In my fathers 4Runner, I'd put the gear shift into Neutral and then just pull the 4WD lever into 4WD Low. Logic would dictate to me that I need to put the gear shift into Neutral and then press the 4WD Low button in the GC.

When I read the manual, I get the impression that I need to push the N Button, wait for it to flash to solid, then press the 4WD low button. If this is the case, where should I bet in the gear shifter? Should that also be in Neutral?

Just the transmission needs to be in neutral to shift to 4low. The button by the 4x4 knob is for the transfer case neutral.

Thanks. Why would I ever need the transfer case to be neutral? The manual does a poor job of explaining this process and why/when I would need to use the transfer case neutral.

If am correct thats only to tow WK2 behind an RV or if a flat tow is not available. To disengage the transfer case while your wheels are running. The main Purpose is not to messup the transmission.
