Electric brake boost pump runs when brake controller pressed

I just finished installing a RedArc elite brake controller in my 2014 Newmar Bay Star Sport F53 chassis. Easily found the harness at the steering column and wired it up.

I ran the green wire on the harness to the red wire on the controller for brake pedal sensor

When testing the controller with a volt meter at the harness it seems to work but the electric brake boost pump that you hear when the ignition is off and you press the brake pedal runs if I activate the trailer brakes (press in on the button) anyone else see this behavior?
