I have no idea what a 4852 is or why I need to put something in line 9.

Form 4852 is a substitute Form 1099-R.  I can't imagine that you would need to do a substitute Form 1099-R for a distribution from the federal TSP.  It would be unusual for the TSP to issue an incorrect From 1099-R or fail to issue a Form 1099-R for a distribution.

Somehow you got a Form 4852 linked to your Form 1099-R for a distribution from the TSP and did not provide a description of your efforts to obtain a correct Form 1099-R from the TSP.  If you really have a reason to file a substitute Form 1099-R for a TSP distribution, you'll need to provide the missing explanation.  If you have no reason to file a substitute Form 1099-R, delete and reenter the Form 1099-R for the TSP distribution.
