Helpful Expert Reply:

The truck side should have 3 slots and a pin, You might consider simply replacing the plug on the truck side, using # 18002, so it will match up with the trailer.

If you wanted to make and adapter, you'd need two of # 18002 and wire them together, color for color. Instead of the quick splice connectors included with them, I'd recommend soldering the connections and using heat shrink tubing like # DW05451 to keep moisture out of the connection.

I've linked you to an article about trailer wiring. I hope you'll find it helpful.
