Four Winds Sprinter 24HL Emergency Brake sticks on

Has anyone had trouble with the emergency brake? Twice now I have set it and cannot get it to release until 15 - 30 minutes of fiddling around with it. First time was winter and would not release....2nd time was spring in Moab and it got stuck for 30 minutes before we could get it to release...Any one else having any issues?

emergency brake release

Well, Mercedes dealer says emerg brake is fine...doing some research online I read a post somewhere that suggested releasing the parking brake before putting engine in gear. So i asked the mercedes tech about this and he said yes, bc when you put the rv in gear and the parking brake is still on, the unit puts pressure on the tires or something....so I'm going to try to always release parking brake before engaging gear.
