Greetings. If you have a machine backed up firm against an object, such as your tool box, and engage the parking brake, it is entirely possible that when the parking brake pawl engaged in the brake disks that it's now under tension and can't release unless you back up just slightly. If that's the case, if you have a chain and a ratchet binder you could hook it up to the machine and somewhere at the rear of the trailer and use the ratchet binder to drag it slightly to the rear of the trailer to give you some relief to release the brake. If that doesn't work, listen for three short beeps from the alarm which indicates a fault and to then check fault codes. Let me know what you find.
