18.5 seneca ts brakes sticking after sitting

Need help on my brakes not releasing after I start the motorhome and building air pressure after sitting in a campground for a couple of months.There are so many other freightliner rv's in the camground parked for months and I dont think they have this problem.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If my 2018.5 HJ sits for a couple of months it does the same thing. Even parked in the barn out of the weather. It is not a bad stick, just give it a little bit of pressure on the accelerator and it breaks free.
But if anyone has a suggestion on how to stop it from sticking, I am all ears.

Itís common with air brakes as when setting in park, there is a lot of pressure and the drums will slightly surface rust and stick. You may not see it happening around the park much as many class a diesel pushers have disc brake. I had a Freightliner box van that we would used 1-2 times a month and it was the same way.
