check the adjustment first at the rear weels , there are slots in behind the backing plate to access adjusters , if are adjusted ok, then park brake assembly is probably bad , they are actualy real common to break on super duty truck, and are no fun to put in

What about when it goes to the floor a couple of times and then it catches the third time ( when it catches it works really well)

not a scew , its a dial adjustment , its really hard to explain, the shoes have to have a slight drag on them, its best to have the rear end off the round so you can spin the wheels and feel the drag

If it goes to the floor several times then pops back up and then catches it is the ratchet assembly that is worn. Like Scuff said! But what does he know.

it doesn't 'pop up' yet, but I have to push it to the floor to stick. Better get the chocks off the boat.....
