Transfer Flow Tank Pump Troubleshooting

My used 250 came with a 37gal TransferFlow Express-UFS tank in the bed. I'm trying to sort out whether it works or not before I go throwing 37 gallons of fuel into it. I read the diags in the docs about ignition on for 5 and off for 10 secs, rinse/repeat, etc but I can't get the pump to run. So its either not working, or I'm not doing something right.

I'm figuring there has to be a better way to just check whether this pump actually spins. Anyone got a better way to troubleshoot this UFS tank? Can I jumper some pins or something to make this thing go?

The alternative I guess is just to let the OEM tank get low enough and see if it fills it back up, but I'm impatient.

EDIT: Figured it out. Not sure what I did this time around that I didnt do the previous 4 times, but it ran its diag. As a note for any new owners of these things, you WILL know when that pump kicks on. Its not a steady flow pump, it pulses and is definitely audible.

The transfer flow tanks attempt to level the tanks. I have one. If your frame tank is half full the bed tank will attempt to be half full. If you have specific questions just call transfer flow they will hook you up. Great company and product.
