Scamp wiring harness

Anyone know the wiring diagram for a Scamp trailer? It's a 1987 13' and has a 6-wire harness: yellow, red, green, black, white & brown. White is the ground, I'm pretty sure red is the left turn signal, after that I got confused...
I was trying to wire trailer to my flat four on my car. Are Scamps wired to allow my car to charge the 12V battery? If so, do I need to convert my car from the flat 4 to something else?

I don't have trailer brakes, can I just use a flat four to six pin adapter?

Usually white is ground (10 gauge wire), black is to charge the battery (+) and is 10 gauge wire- tho it looks like your red wire is the 10 gauge, yellow is left turn and stop lights(14 gauge wire), green is rt turn and stop lights (14g), brown is tail and running lights (14g). Blue is the only 12 gauge wire and would be for trailer brakes. If you want to ditch the charging, then yes you can wire to a 4 pole.

Thanks, got it figured out. Not charging battery when I drive yet but all trailer lights work. Only thing that doesn't happen is the lower light bulb in the tail lights never come on. The upper ones do and light up brighter when I brake. I know the bulbs work.

Go to the Document Center on this site and you'll find a full and complete wiring diagram for Scamp and wiring diagram for the 7 pin connector.

IMHO, car + scamp = trailer brakes, period. I lost brakes on my empty 2,000# car trailer behind my pickup and it was obvious it was back there. Not dangerous under normal conditions, but obvious. I was glad to get home without somebody doing something stupid in front of me.

I had a guy try to cross the road I was on, but he couldn't make it across due to traffic going the other direction, so he just stopped and blocked both lanes on my side. It was a miracle I missed him, I stopped inches from his drivers door. The guy next to me just crushed the side of his pickup bed in. I was damn happy I had good brakes on the scamp. Going full manual on the brake controller while driving down the road will put your head in the windshield.
