Ray, my only point there is that you can't legally reduce from a larger drain line to a smaller anywhere other than at the drain itself. Appears you are not intending to do that, which is a good...

Welcome, Axxel. :)

That RedGard should not easily peel off your backer board, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it do so on that Hardiebacker.
