The wires on your trailer are most likely:

White being ground and will run to the pin that is jacketed by itself on the 4-way
Yellow/brown is the left side running light circuit gets run to the pin next to the ground circuit
Green/brown is the right side running light circuit also gets run to the pin next to the ground circuit
Yellow will be the stoplight/turn signal for the left side and gets run to the pin next to the running light circuit
Green will be the stoplight/turn signal for the right side and gets run to the pin on the opposite end of ground strap
