Have you tried backing up and hitting the brakes a few times? That should activate the self adjusters and bring the shoes out.
Another idea. The starwheel adjusters have opposite threads left and right. If they get mixed up, the self adjusters will bring the shoes in instead of out.
And this. If you reach under the truck and pull the p-brake cable down, do the inner cables move inside the outer cables back at the rear brakes? It is possible for them to rust up solid over time.
