Brake shoes rusted

I own an Allegro Bus, 32 feet, 2000 year. I have a problem of brake shoes on the drive wheel (passenger rear) rusting on me after a rainfall or just not being used for a period of time. Breaking the rust hold is quite a problem. Anyone know of a way of preventing such a lock-up?

Might help to put tire covers on to help keep the water from splashing on the wheel

If it happens only on the one side, you might check to see if the rainwater gets directed by something on that side. If you can identify the channel, maybe you can do something to alter it.

Gently rocking the coach back and forth should break it free. This happens all the time on semi trucks and trailers that set for any time. In winter the shoes can even freeze to the drum, then it involves crawling under the vehicle with a hammer (been there, done that) .... You can also try parking without setting the parking brake and just putting the transmission it park.

We had to pop or rock brakes free many times at the dealership that rust is like glue in some cases
