Not a good morning. Emergency brake didnt hold

Most folk know that I really fancy this truck and often toot its horn when it comes to how good of shape the truck is in. This morning I experienced my first major blemish.
Pull the truck out of the garage and set the brake, went back to get the trash and was on my third trip when I turned around to see the truck was drifting down through the yard. I took off like a bat out of torment but didnt catch it in time before it side swiped the clothes line pole where several bird feeders were hanging. Fortunately I was able to catch it before it hit a maple tree head-on but my drivers side door is history. The mirror pulled the top of the door down and there is a large gap not allowing it to seal. What a bummer!

I have a 02 with the manual trans. I really wish these trucks had a lot better parking brakes. Mine will not hold itself on a slope. And yes i have went thru them a couple times and it just seems like you can't put enough pressure on them to get them to hold. I am thinking about putting a micro lock on mine. I had one on my older truck when we had a cattle trailer on it. You could leave the brakes locked for a week and you couldn't even drive thru them.

I learned a painful and valuable lesson yesterday BS Hauler.
i've been noticing the need to push the EB harder to get it to hold but I still dont understand why the darn thing sit there for 2 minutes before deciding the run off. I'll definitely be keeping a chock with me from now on.

It was locked in just enough to hold the truck as you got out. Then with the truck running causing vibrations it slowly lost grip until the truck was moving. Having to push the brake down harder and harder could of been a indication that there was a problem with the e-brake actually making enough contact to actually hold the truck.
