Go south? The brakes will freeze up if they are wet and it gets below freezing. As far as braking problems in wet and slushy conditions you might try lightly touching the brakes while moving to put some heat into the brakes to dry them from time to time.

A lot of us have experienced this issue. Rock the coach back and forth, and it will break free.

I don't think there is a solution regarding replacing brakes, etc. Just the way it is.
