Default Wiring a cargo trailer to a PT

I recently purchased a motorcycle cargo/luggage trailer to pull behind my PT. I had already installed the hitch and wiring earlier with no problems. My delima is this, the trailer has five (5) wires and the PT has four (4). I traced down all five wires on the trailer and marked which color wire went to what. I can not figure out how to connect the 4 wire to the 5 wire and have it work correctly. According to the test plug for the 4 wire plug, white is ground, brown is tail, green is turn, yellow is running, and yellow and green are brake.

anyone know how to go about hooking this up so the lights on the trailer will work the way they are suppose to.

Thanks,
Cruiszr

Also, here's a video of a four pole plug being adapted to a five pole plug.

Here's a photo of the trailer that I pull with Our GT Conv. It's converted from a four pole plug to a six pole plug. (It has electric trailer brakes)
