I need to hook up a 4-way plug and I'm wondering which wire is which. There is a dark green, light green, yellow, brown and a thick white ground wire. Any help?

Theres an extra fifth wire hanging off the trailer's hookup which i thought was the ground but everytime i hook it up to the ground on the truck i blow a fuse.

If I am Correct, I'm Sure you already figured it out.
White = ground

Brown = Parking Lights

Yellow = Left Turn Signal

Green= Right turn signal

We were more wondering about which light is which on the trailer. We'll try the battery charger thing.
