Stuck parking brake

Diesel pusher...air brakes.
Last time I moved....and took the coach out of PARK.....the brakes failed to release. Was momentarily stuck in place.
Put the coach in R ...depressed accelerator....nothing...then back to D.....
Coach broke free with a loud "breaking free" sound.
Any experience with his problem?

Several possibilities. Frozen (with ice), Rusted in place, S-cam nearly over centre, lack of lubrication, low air pressure

How long since you drove it? Rust could've formed sticking the shoes to the drum . Yes, it's happened to me.

Brakes

Thanks for the replies. I figured a humidity/rust problem was the cause. I'm here for a few months so might start the thing up and work the brakes every month or so.
