Do you need the wire colors for each terminal?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It says the wire colour on each terminal but there is one missing on the trailer side with says brown which there is no brown wire
I thinhki there is two different set ups and I have the wrong one on the trailer
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 8 months ago.

Do you think you need to purchase a different trailer connecter? You can test all the terminals on your truck with a test light to verify that all the signals and lights, etc are working. Then you know your trailer is definatly the problem.

I tried for some reason none of the connectors would light up the tester maybe not grounded enough
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I am going to the store to have a look at other connectors
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 8 months ago.

Run a wire all the way from the battery ground to verify a good test light ground.
