Locked up tire?

2002 f150 crewcab 4x4, 5.4L. Went to back out of the garage, truck went back about 2 feet and then stopped like I had hit something. Went forward about same distance and same thing, felt like I hit something and couldn't go any further. (NO I was not hitting anything) Back and forth a few times, I'm guessing about 1 tire rotation was as far as I could go. Jacked up the rear end, and it wouldn't spin the tires. In neutral, I could turn the right rear tire by hand, but the left was locked up. Tried a few more times in drive/reverse with no luck, they wouldn't spin in the air. Now I have an edge programmer on it, which I returned to stock, that didn't have any effect, so I unplugged it from the truck completely and tried a few more times and it suddenly all started working. Now I really doubt that had anything to do with it but who knows...I pulled off the left rear tire, and the brake seems to be all in order. Anyone run into this before or have any suggestions before I have a shop charge me $$$ to pull it apart/take a look?

Thanks

kids used the emergency brake on their buddies 97 F150 couple years ago and did same thing. Took me a while to figure out it only happened AFTER they drove it.

Take off the rear rotors. The e-brake pads are on the back side of the rotor. They might be hanging up.

It was the park brake, both sides. Previous owner hauled a boat and obviously the wheels had spent lots of time under water. The brake shoes had rusted apart and seperated, becoming jammed. Quick fix, fortunately. I was a little frustrated as only a couple weeks ago it was in the shop for a tune up and I asked them to check the brakes. They said all good, but I guess brakes don't include the park brakes.

On a side note, does anyone have a suggestion for trailer towing mirror extensions? Just manual strap on (not permanent or electrical) that work well and don't vibrate/shake in the wind. I'm having trouble finding one that isn't the cheap Canadian Tire version (live near Calgary) or a model that fits the 02 supercrew, as they seem to be different than the standard f150. Hopefully something around or under the $100 mark...
