Default e-brake stuck

A while back, my right rear e-brake started getting stuck on me randomly. When it happened, I had to get in there and adjust the allen screw to get it to let go. After that happened 3-4 times, I said f' it, and got new rear calipers. Now the left rear has frozen on me twice (but only after being parked for 1+ weeks with the e-brake on). Anyone got any tricks up their sleeve?
