Default Replacement ECU no VIN- Hurricane Flasher

I added a Hurricane Gap Flasher to my 2017 ThunderCat. The first time I installed it, It blew off a hose that was loose and threw a 1236 error code.
The dealer fixed the leak but could not clear the code. (We swapped another ecu to verify the leak was fixed).
After waiting 6 weeks I finally got the replacement ECU.
Here's the issue:
The new ECU is not programmed with a vin number. Factory says they don't do it and dealer says he has no way to do it.
Now my flasher won't work cause I have no vin

I have a call in to Hurricane but wanted to check if anyone else has run in to the no VIN thing.
