Expert Reply:

The wire colors you mentioned are not standard colors so your best option is to test the wires and run them accordingly to the # 16-4B-1 that you referenced. Easiest way to do that would be to use a jumper wire from a vehicle battery's positive post to each of the wires you mentioned to find out what circuit they control and then wire accordingly to the 4-way wiring. The green wire is right turn/stop, yellow is left turn/stop, white is ground, and brown is taillight. Most likely white on the trailer is ground.
