How To Move Bus That Wont Start?! HELP!

Hi everybody Ive got a 30ft short bus with a Cummins engine that has been sitting in my backyard for about a year without being started. Were trying to move it because of where were putting our pool. This girl will not budge, we caged the breaks and tried pulling it with a truck. Any ideas on how to get her to move?! Thank you!!

I pressure washed my wheel and didn't move my bus for a while. The drum rusted to the brake and had me really locked up. When I went to move it, bus was basically in park.. I hit each drum with air hammers and then rocked it until there was enough torque to break them loose. You might have to pull them off if they are really bad.
