Tail light wire color

I'm supposed to help a friend move tomorrow. A friend of his has a small trailer he has offered to let us use. I have a ball on my step bumper (don't worry, probably nothing heavier than a couch will be on the tiny trailer at a time), but no wiring harness for the trailer lights. I picked up a pretty straight forward universal 4 wire kit to slap on in the morning. I was wondering if anyone knew off hand the wire color for the left and right turn signals and brake lights? I'm sure I could figure it out by following the wires and checking with a multimeter, but we have probably a full day of moving crap tomorrow, and I'd like to just go splice it in in the AM with no fuss.

Thanks!

drumfield has a good reputation on FTE.drumfield has a good reputation on FTE.drumfield has a good reputation on FTE.
Generally speaking,

Brown=Tail lights/marker lamps
Green=Left hand turn and brake light
Orange or yellow=Right hand turn and brake light

Your wires may or may not have tracers on them, and/or the colors faded, but this will get you in the game I think.
Easiest way to check is with a test light, while using the lights on the truck.
