    Try going backwards, when shoes stick to the drums, they seem to always free up in reverse for me.

    Two weeks? Have you tried calling someone? Road service. Maybe a wrecker or someone to try to pull you out of your spot?

    What did you do to help them spin?
    I am suspicious that it might be the my case

    By summer time you should be free to roll.

    Pour some bleach on the drives. Don’t need much. Let it run down between the tread and sit, maybe 30 minutes. Then try to move the truck.
     
    KostaN Thanks this.

    I guess the bottom of the tires are frozen to the ground
    Would bleach go all the way down ?
    I have never heard of that before
    I might give it a try
