I had a quick panic when I saw a red wire hooked to that ground strip in your picture but then I remembered that my 1700's water pump also has 2 red wires... The red one is positive and the red one is negative. I almost hooked the red one to negative once but wisened up just in time and hooked the red one to negative instead.
The only colors I could get for the brake wires were red and black. I'm looking for some blue tape to mark them with.

That's pretty much what I use, expect that one is better than mine in a way because it has a piggyback 4-way - if you tow a simple trailer that needs the 4-way, you don't have to unplug this adapter from the original 4-way. That feature would be even more valuable if the 7-way were hardwired in.

I see that adapter seems to use all four wires of the 4-way, plus has four individual wires (one of which is white with a ring terminal. In this case, they seem to be connecting to the 4-way's negative ("ground") connection plus providing an additional wire for the same terminal. In my case, the adapter didn't connect to the 4-way's white wire at all, forcing me to make a separate connection. In both cases, the intent is to provide a negative connection with higher current capacity than the lightly wired 4-way, which is necessary to use the brakes and/or charge line.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

That works, and should save confusion later. Electrical tape does come in blue, but I think a bit of blue heat-shrink tubing would be even better, since it's tidier and more likely to still be in place years later.

Hopkins makes one of those. I bought two of those, one for each TV and wired one up. I also have a small sailboat trailer that is a 4 wire...

Pricey little things though... But worth it in my opinion.

In case you didn't see it here's my other "rig" that I need the 4 pin for.

That is the exact one I have on my Jeep Liberty. Great to be able to handle both types of connectors.
