On the recent field workshop, a number of attendees suggested they typically don't use the hand brake outside MOTs because it mud usually means that there is a possibility of the shoes/drum seizing with crud in them and it was difficult to sort out once seized during overlanding. A couple suggested they never use it as the drive train in P [auto] is sufficient to stop the truck moving. I wanted to know if others feel the same way and whether anything can be done to improve the situation or minimise the chance of it seizing in the first place.
