Brake Buddy Proportional Brake problem

Bought a BB unit a while back to use when I put the Jeep Sahara in service. I have use the BB twice without problems. On this third trip over Newfound Gap (coming across Smokey Mtn NP) I had an alert light on the remote unit in the MH. Said it was a extension arm alert. Googled around and all I can find is arm is not fully retracting. Is this causing brakes to drag? I had two alerts to that cleared when I unplugged the unit and started from the beginning again.
I have found nothing from BB site about how to clear this or was it more than barely mentioned. Do I need to slide the seat closer? It appears it is loose enough to retract as there is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch between the handle and the seat. Do I need to slide it back further?
I ended up taking the unit out and towing on into Pigeon Forge with just MH braking and did fine, but when you spend the kind of cash these things cost, you expect a little better.

Have you contacted Brake buddy about this, they replied quickly the one time I had a concern about my remote. This being the weekend you may not get a quick reply, but I would still give it a try. Whenever you find the answer to this please let us know.
