I believe you can look up the manufacturer of the trailer plug kit and find the wiring diagram there. On alot of the trailer plug kits, they have pics and diagrams in the package. The 7 pin plug (truck side) is available with the pig tail set up that plugs directly into the wiring harness for the lights. Then all you would have to worry about is the 2 wires for the electric brakes.

7way- black is 12volt (power), brown, running lights, yellow is left turn signal and stop light, green is right turn signal and stop light, white is ground, blue is brakes, and orange is aux power (can be back up lights, if trailer equipped w/ them). 6way is the same, minus orange wire. I have run into some variations to the above color codes (brown, yellow and green only-sometimes these 3 are different than stated, but only mixed as that group, as to what they control- example would be green is running lights, brown and yellow are turn signal and stop lights, the others should be as stated), if you have any trouble with things not working properly, it may be due to these variations, although the above are pretty standard. If you have an ohm meter you can check as you go (check for power at black wire- should be constant 12v, turn on turn signal and check for power-it will fluctuate from approx. 12 volts to 0 volts as the signal power pulses in the wire) hit the brakes, blue wire should show power, etc. Let me know if you need more help as you go.

SOURCE: Trailer wiring
you have to purchase a converter box with 5 wires, red, yellow, green and brown. this is because your turn signal is seperate from you parking and brake light bulb. you have to wire it straight in behind the connector.your basically converting two wires ( brakes and parking) to one wire (tailights) 5 wire to 4 wire.

just basically have a possitive and a negative cable connected from the battery to a plug on the towbar. then in the trailer have a possitive and a negative connected to that battery and a plug from the trailer to connect with the towbar plug. if that makes sense, then it will charge when connected but maybe only connect when engine is running.
