Are they froze,as in cold temperature, or froze as in parked when the brakes were wet, and not driven for a while. Either way, a good tap on the drum with a hammer may do the trick.

joe,
if they are drum brakes as you state, try backing up to release them.
that will not work with disc brakes.

That and if froze due to temps a propane torch will thaw them. Did that many times on frozen semi trailer brakes... Nothing like crawling around under a trailer in freezing temps in the snow ! Also you might try (gently) rocking the coach back and forth to break them free, first then reverse to rock it back and forth.....

With the lack of clearance under the MH, I would NOT suggest being under it with a person working the brakes. Much safer to 'tap' the rears first, then try to move it. If that did not work then try the fronts.
Hopefully just 'rocking' it break them loose.
