2015 patriot rear rotor

I am trying to find any info I can on how to remove the rotor .My husband can't even get it to budge.He has been out there now for a couple of hours trying what he could. Is there a trick to getting them off there is only 27000 miles on it, but we live in an area where winter roads get salted but we pressure wash it off regularly Thanks for any and all help

Back of the parking brake shoes as much as possible and get a bigger sledge hammer.

It's been awhile but I believe the adjuster is accessed from the rubber plug on the front of the rotor.

BRAKES - BASE 5 - 127
NOTE: To find the adjuster wheel with the drum on position the hole (1) in the front of the rotor drum as follows:
Left side – 7 o’clock.
Right side – 5 o’clock.
NOTE: When adjusting the parking brake shoes with the drum-in hat rotor installed,
rotating the adjuster wheel (2) upward will loosen the adjustment.
Rotating the adjuster wheel (2) downward will tighten the adjustment.
12. Remove the rubber plug from the hole (1) in the front of the rotor.
13. Utilizing the hole (1) in the front of the rotor, make a final adjustment of the shoes if necessary.
14. Reinstall the rubber plug.
