Now the new troubleshooting info. When I have the brake applied and put the rig in gear it doesn't move at all and you can feel the transmission engage. When I do the same thing with the brake released the coach rocks forward about 6 inches and a little less in reverse. So it seems to me as if the brakes are releasing but something else is preventing movement.

I checked again underneath and can't see anything remiss. Any new suggestions or is it time to break out the checkbook and pay an "expert" to come look at it.
Randy, something does not sound right, without foot on the brake, your Coach should take off at a slow speed and not stop till the brakes are applied, I can "Idle" out of a campground/resort if it is fairly flat without touching the throttle pedal. Sounds like something is hung/hanging up.......
At this point(computer to computer) alls I can suggest is to get the rear axle up so the tire's are not touching, and start it up, wait till air dryer purges, check air gauges fro proper pressure, release brakes(front tires blocked front and back, level surface for this operation), and try to turn the rear wheels by hand, to see if the brakes are released.......and maybe get closer to what the problem is.

Yeah she moves!!!

Hi, finally had a tech come out. He did the same rocking that I did but applied more RPM's (1200 vs 1000) and it came unstuck. Guess I was just to worried about doing damage to the transmission. He thought like many here that it had "rusted" shut after my trip to the coast.

Thanks to all those that provided suggestions.

This forum is awesome as usual. Had the same problem this morning after coming back from Florida last month. Our last 40 miles was through rain/snow and everything got soaked, so its either rusted or frozen.

Glad to hear you got the problem solved.

Here is a suggestion that I use when I am stored for the winter. I usually will go and start the engine once a month, and bring it up to full operating temperature. While I am doing this, I release the parking brake and then reset it. My feeling is that if rust is beginning to form it will break loose and not thicken up enough to sieze up the brake pads.

Just got back and it worked. Had to lift the coach, place the jack stands and chock the wheels to bang on the drums. It was the lefthand side and a few quick love taps and she broke free. I could see the rust from the moisture we picked up last month.

Sure would be nice if they made ceramic linings.

Typical air brakes, some times it just needs a bigger hammer! Read your manual on air brakes, you should check the time it takes for your air to refill and know what the pressure is when the brakes will lock and bring you to a stop. 30 PSI is not enough to release the brakes the pressure needs to be at the least 60psi.
