Possible to add electric brake bypass to drum brake '93 trailer?

I ordered the Trailer Buddy from Pacific Trailers that bypasses the brake line pressure when backing up but it shows a return line that only the disk brake actuator has. Any chance I could drill and tap my own return line to the reservoir? Anyone ever use one of these on an older drum brake trailer? I have to back up a pretty good incline and trying to keep the lockout piece in place drives me nuts. I can't ask someone else to bring my trailer back after launching if they have to go through this routine every time. I don't plan to go to disk brakes and if I have to get a new actuator I will but something tells me I can adapt what I have.
