Also, a shock absorber in the actuator will cause the piston in the master cylinder to move quicker on the rebound when trailer slows down.

I had my issue upon light breaking....You can easily see the actuator bucking forward and backward and causing the chattering sound...per UFP - new shock, wear pads and properly bled lines.
Mike:

I have taken the following steps:

I installed the actuator on the trailer
Attached the blue reverse lock out wire.
Attached the white ground wire to the solenoid
I filled the brake fluid reservoir
We bled the brakes one wheel at a time front to back while apply pressure to the actuator

I think I am done? However, you mention the following, "If you have the UFP A60 or any UFP master cylinder it also has to be bled - "

How do you bleed the master cylinder?

thanks!
