Expert Reply:

Since you said your trailer was a homemade trailer I wonder if someone mistakenly installed a vehicle side 6-way on the trailer and that is why you have a female 6-way there.

The best recommendation I can give you would be to cut off the 6-way on your trailer and wire up a trailer 4-way like part # HM48110. I attached an FAQ on trailer wiring for you to check out.

The easiest way to determine the functions of the wires of the trailer wiring would be to use a jumper wire and a car battery to apply voltage on the wires to see what circuits illuminate.

On the # HM48110 the yellow wire is the left turn and brake, the green is right turn and brake, brown is tail light and white is ground.
