Yes.

I have a very steep drive way but thankfully I'm in Texas so it has only frozen over once (and yes, my f150 was sitting at the bottom the next morning thankfully not in the road.)

Press brakes with foot, pull ebrake,shift car into neutral, release foot break, when car has rolled into locked position then shift to park. This way you have no transmission strain unless your brakes fail and it engages as safety.

YES, always.

The usual routine is:

With the ignition still on, press the break pedal
Shift to P
Pull the e-park brake button up and wait for it to engage fully (you will feel with your foot on the break pedal)
Release the break pedal
Ignition off
Done :D
