2000 durango, 186,000k. First brake application of the day, the passenger rear brake locks up (skids)with normal brake pedal pressure, for jsut an instant. Just the first application of the day. Fine after that. Porportioning valve maybe? Maybe needs a fluid flush?

Do you

I'll bet you're on a granite driveway or road, right? That's pretty normal. It's due to surface rust buildup on the rear drums from the humidity in the air overnight.
