Roadmaster Portable Braking System Issues

Good Morning Everyone, Need your help AGAIN,

Has anyone ever tried to stuff a Roadmaster Portable Braking System "Model #9300" into a 2009 Jeep Liberty?
Seems once you get it on the car's floor pan, the test button rubs up against the plastic cover of the lower Inst. Panel and I'm concerned that while driving down the road it will cause the braking system to cycle and lock up the Jeep's brakes.
I'm thinking that Chysler made a change to the stamping of the floor pan and Roadmaster it not aware of it.
I spoke to a Tech at Roadmaster, but he wasn't any help, all he told me was that it does fit and has heard of no issues with it.

Just a quick question, but, have you tried adjusting the feet on the Roadmaster?

Good Morning Gordon, I took the legs off on the left hand side because it sits on the floor pan rail and extended the legs on the right hand side. Still the test button hits the plastic panel.

I have the same unit. Thankfully, I don't have a clearance problem; but according to the instruction manual, Roadmaster has 2 different size actuator rod extensions available. Although the manual states these are primarily used if there is too much distance between the seat and the brake pedal, it may also be possible to use an extension to move the unit farther back on the floor to avoid interference with the dash. Make sure you have enough seat travel to accommodate the longer actuator rod.
