This is incorrect information. Start by bleeding the wheel furthest away from the master cyclinder, and work your way towards the closest distance to the master cylinder.
A trick to be sure you don't suck air back into the lines is to put a bleed hose on the nipple of the bleed valve and submerge it into a clear bottle half full with brake fluid. Corona bottles work really well. This way when you push the air out of the lines, it goes into the bottle and rises out of the fluid, and when you decompress the master cyclinder, only brake fluid will be sucked back in. It makes bleeding the brakes a much easier 1 man job.
You also shouldn't need to use the winch on your trailer. A 2x4 to get leverage should be sufficient. If you look under the actuator, some will have a small hold to insert a screwdriver into, which you can also use to activate the master cylinder and simulate a "stop" that would occur under driving conditions.
There's a few really good youtube videos (one in particular with an Asian guy bleeding the brakes on his bass boat) which can lend some helpful advice. It's not a hard thing to do, it just takes patience.
