I Have to rewire the trailer plug on my 2000 f350 to pull our goose neck. The trailer has electric brakes. Orange-power feed all the time White-ground Blue-? Green-turn signal Yellow-turn signal Black with green stripe-? Brown white stripe-trailer marker lights ok i have that much figure out. Are they right? what is the blue wire. and what is the black with a green stripe? im wiring it into just a basic 6 pole round plug in.

You said you were re-wiring yours? What kind of plug do you have now, factory? I added a 7way plug in the bed of my truck. I removed the factory plug (just a quick connect behind bumper) and spliced into it a section of 7 way wire i had left over from replacing the trailer side plug on my landscape trailer. I had wiring diagrams, but just make sure the corresponding wires on each plug match. I drilled a hole behind the driver's side tail light, at the widest part of the bed (close to the tie down anchor). I then fished the new wiring up through the wiring access to the tail light, and through the new hole i drilled. Then connect the wires to the back of the female plug. I'll see if I can get a picture.
This way I don't have to worry about the plug flopping against the tailgate, or hanging up on something. I also did it cause i thought it was cool.

It would have been easier, but I couldn't find an adapter for my year of truck. Hoppy makes a "Fifth wheel wiring kit" which is a quick connect tee that plugs in where the factory harness is now, and has a plug on one end of the tee. The other end of the tee has the bare wires to connect to the female plug. Pretty easy, just disconnect the factory harness, connect the two new plugs, and connect the wires to the female plug. They make them for newer superduties, but i couldn't find one for mine. I accidentally bought one for a newer modlel and realized the pins on the harness didn't match up, so i just returned it, and made my own. About the same price, but more time consuming.
I believe this is what you are looking for: This is for the ford wiring.
