depends on the year and model, do you have a 13, 15 or 17 footer?
what do the lights look like on the back, do you have trailer brakes?
need to know these, to be able to help

Best Bet... Start from scratch, run new wires and make your own schematic as you go.
For the tail lights you can buy a Bargeman wiring kit, that will give you quality wires of the correct gauge for all the tail lights etc. as well as a common color code to use. I usually put a terminal strip right inside the front wall and wire to and from that point.

Check in the documents center on the left side of the home page, and then go to the bottom and open Trailer brand mfg, find TRILLIUM and look for the wiring diagram.

Send a message via Yahoo to Darwin Maring
What I have previously done: I installed plastic conduit (Water Pipe) under the camper and ran my wires in there. Very easy and it provides protection to the wires.

the wiring to your lights should enter under the road side bench at the front, there are usually joints there, its a common place for a bad ground connection(usually a bunch of white wires under a crimp connector.)
From there wiring generally runs along the road side to the back where it meets the roadside tailight,(more joints) then across the back to the curbside taillight(more joints)
You may have to carefully peel back ensolite below the benches to access the connections.

Hey Roy, went down to Princess Auto and found that all the LED trailer lights that where on sale for $39.99 are sold out. That's 2 (two) days ago when I purchased mine. WOW they are sure popular.
