MH Wouldn't Move
Everything was loaded up, including the dog, engine warmed up, and the wife drove off in the dingy. We normally drive to a local church parking lot and hook up the dingy. I depressed the brake pedal, released the parking brake, pushed the "R" button and nothing, would not move. I shifted back to "N", reset the brake, shifted to "D",re-released the brake same thing, would not move. Repeated the above several times still would not move. I deployed the leveling jacks and crawled under to take a look. Every thing looked OK, the levers, rods, pistons were working as they are supposed to so no trouble with the air part of the system. Noticed that eventhough the parts were moving the way they are supposed to the shoes would not release, stuck to the drums. I used a piece of 1" brass rod placed up against the shoes steel backing and struck the rod with a shop hammer several times and the shoes released. Cleaned up the mess and myself and got on the road three hours late. Not sure why they stuck, perhaps some of you more experienced folks can help me understand why this happened. The MH (2003 Monaco Diplomat) had been parked since December 28.
