Yellow is the left turn signal, White is ground, Dark Green is the right turn signal, Brown is the running lights and brake light, the others are for the electric brake set up for the trailer.

Expert Reply:
When wiring a trailer connector, it is best to wire by function, as wire colors can vary. We have an excellent wiring diagram on our website, I will provide you a link so you can look at it.

If you are looking at the inside of the trailer connector where the wires mount to the terminals starting at the notch at the top and working clockwise:

1:00 is Black and 12 volt power
3:00 is Green and Right Turn and Brake
5:00 is Blue and Brake Controller
7:00 is White and Ground
9:00 is Yellow and Left Turn and Brake
11:00 is Brown and Tail and Running Lights
Center is Purple and is Optional Reverse

I recommend using a circuit tester like part # 40376 to verify your connections.

I want to tap into the reverse tail light wiring for a surge brake solenioid,


We at not living in the 1960's

You tap into any of today's vehicle circuits, your
asking for unknown problems

Have you considered you said a solenoid,& do you
know the current draw on that solenoid

Best design a new circuit using a relay & control it with
the back up switch ,if the can handle the extra current

Need wiring diagrams,some math & ohm's law there

Use a voltmeter with the key on. Place one lead on the body and go through the pins until u read 12 volts and that will be the hot. Turn on a turn signal and then repeat the steps. You should be able to crack the color code after the process.

I bought a lark enclosed trailer and it is wired with the 7 pole rv plug and my truck has the 6 pole. i changed the trailer end to a 6 pole, matched the same wiring as my other trailers but the lights on...


Normally all trailers are wired the same. What I think has happend is the new plug has been wired in wrong. The Rv Plugs wiring is differnt than that of a flat four and round six. I would look in the box that you got the plug in a make sure the wires are correct. I can't find a diagram work the wiring but I do know that the brown is the tail lights, red is the brake, yellow is left turn, green is right turn, and the blue wire is the electric brakes. there is also a Aux power I think that is a pink or Bigger gauge red wire.

Well you have what is called a BUGGER.5 dont go into 4 so the problem is either the trailer is OLD and never had stop lights OR the white wire is your stop lights and it earths through the towball (but it shouldent ) so either someone has cut out the stop light wire .so check rear lights What colour is stoplight wire. As all DC wiring for trailers are 5or 7 core wires 5 for trailers and 7 for caravans..
Let me know how you get on Ron

I have a 6 p0le from the truck to a 7 pole on the camper how do i wire it so the backup lights work? its a 91 camper special


usually the trailer plug isnt wired for backup lights,i guess you will have to wire it manually,check the color of your wire to the backup lights of your truck,locate that wire underneath the back bumper and splice a wire to it to hook to your plug to the trailer.make sure the reverse wire from your trailer matches up with the terminal at your truck

Go to an auto parts store and see if you can have a look at some electric brake modulators and trailer connectors they almost always have instructions in them that detail standard colors for any install. The standard diagram is often right on the back of the connector package.
