Too large brake pedal

Does anyone else have a problem with the brake pedal too close to the throttle? My size D shoes barely fit between them and I have to be carefull to drop my foot or turn it sideways to keep from hitting the brake pedal. Have thought about cutting part of the brake pad off. Is there anything else I can do except wear tighter shoes? Roger

I have a 2001 F53 with the double wide brake pedal and have no problems fittng my size 12 Triple E in and out from the gas to the brake pedal. Did Bounder/Fleetwood remove the Ford pedal and put something wider in its place? Note that Winnibago made the pedal wider by extending it to the left away from the gas pedal not towards it.

I have a 2014 F-53 and that is still an issue. Lots of complaints about it. I manage but I have to be aware of it at all times.

I learned left foot braking in extreme heavy traffic in Chicago, fifty years ago. 1/2 the response time in emergencies. I wear 13's. I move my right foot out of the way on decel. No problem on my F53.

too large brake pedal

Boy, I thought i had big feet. I do not know how you guys get those things between the pedals if its like mine. I feel like I am wearing snow shoes when driving it. Do you think some of the models were built closer than others? Thanks for the feedback.

Why do you want to put your feet between them. I slide mine from pedal to pedal.

I also try to shift my foot from one to the other, but thats the problem. Engine cover is close to the gas pedal and will not let your foot move to the right. I think I will just check with welding shop and see if brake pedal can be heated and moved to the left. I was just checking to see if anyone else had a salution. Thanks Roger

I'd reconsider that. If you get your foot stuck between them , it may impede your ability to hit the brakes as quick as you'd like to in certain circumstances. Like an emergency EEK.
