I've always just cycled a hydraulic system full open of the piston and then full closed. The air works it's way out on its own.

The dump box goes up, but then comes down before we can spread our load.

I'm guessing this is a power up, gravity down system (pump runs to raise the trailer, and doesn't when it's let down). Should be a check valve on the pressure side, and a solenoidal actuated return valve on the fluid dump side that lets fluid back into the tank from the hydraulic cylinder. It could be a bad check valve, or a bad seat in the return valve.

Have a 7x14 bray dump trailer dumps 3/4's then runs out of fluid. to fully dump i have to add fluid then as the box lowers down it pushes the extra fluid on to the ground?

When the dumping piston lowers, there should be fluid being taken into the other side of the piston from the return hose. The fluid level in the reservoir should not change. Has the hose routing been changed from original design?

Which fuse governs the dump hydraulic pump for the dump body?

This system is not provided by Ford, so look for heavy wires at the pump, and trace those back to battery power.

Fuses will most likely not be in the fuse panel.

2nd, no leaks that are dumping the pressure
3rd, no blockage in tubes, located inside pump housing.
4th, make sure operating handle is engaging
try these and if nothing works let me know.

Priming problem

Make sure you try to prime right when the machine is turned on, so that there is no boiler pressure making it more difficult to prime.
