Power gear "brake engage" light flashing

Hey all I've had to replace my old 500456 control pad with power gear 500731, I've made the electrical changes per pg and the panel lights up but I can't seem to figure out how to get the Engage Brake light to quit flashing.

Has anyone dealt with this? Need some assistance
On the 6 pin connector, pin 1 is the parking brake connection, now this was used on the 500457 control box "which is the brake wire I have 12v with ignition on, does this get jumped to pin 6?

Helppppp no jacks

Normally your parking brake will provide a ground for the leveling or slideout systems.

Thanks RVWizard,

I kinda figured but I actually have 12 volts showing on that wire with the key on. I was hoping someone else had dealt with the same issue. Darn frustrating

Talked with pg tech services, indeed pin 1 was looking for ground. I know I bypassed the safety features but being I'm an orphan owner I have NO IDEA how national would have wired this thing so for now I'm going this route. Maybe once I track down all the schematics I can go back and correct it.
