Oregon? Road salt and snow maybe? I'm in Northern Michigan. One thing we never ever ever do at this latitude is use the parking brake. If truck is new-ish then fine, but if it's several years old just don't do it. The cables seize and brake doesn't release. Most of the time if it's an older vehicle we just remove the parking brake hardware completely. I wouldn't do this on a professional level, but on personal vehicles it's not worth the hassle. Granted, most of the time we are parked on relatively flat grades. If problem persist you might consider replacing cable.
