Real Hot Rotor

so i dont know if any of you have know what is going on but today after work i decided to wash my truck after hunting all weekend and as i was hosing it down my left rear rotor started smoking when the water hit it. none of the others did it so i dont know why this rotor is getting so hot. could the pads be dragging. i though maybe my park brake was adjusted wrong and not releasing all the way but then the other one would be dragging too. any thoughts would be great

Either the caliper is sticking or the brake hose on that side is worn. But its the caliper most often

Mine did the same thing but it happened on the highway lol, big smoke cloud after i got off. I ended up replacing that caliper and the other three because they all did the same thing within like a month. Fromt ones are fun because the truck suddenly turns to the direction of the stuck caliper. I guess I'm just "lucky"

Either siezed caliper or the slide pins on the caliper mount are frozed and not allowing the caliper to slide back.
