Angry Tail light red, green, yellow wires?

I have a 1964 Globetrotter with the old wedding cake tail lights (broken and cracked.) I'm replacing them with InlandRV replacement lights. The three wire colors eminating from my trailer tail lights are: red, green, and yellow. The wires on the new replacement tail lights are: red, black, and white.

Does anyone know which trailer wires go to which replacement light wires?
Perplexed!

I've yet had to order replacements or use one of the repro on my 64GT...
If you have a voltmeter, you could try taking a reading of voltage while someone hits the brakes, etc.
Or simply:
Why not try it in the order you mention??
After all, what's the worse you could do? (If it sparks on you be QUICK..lol)
Report back with your results.
BTW, How do they look compared to the originals>??
ciao

Sounds like the old Bargeman 99 lights. I wonder if I could ask you one thing--why replace the whole light assembly if the only problem appears to be cracked lenses? Unless the original wiring doesn't work, it's much easier (not to mention cheaper) just to replace the lens and, if necessary, the light bulb. I did that on mine--took about 5 minutes, no wires. If that works, return the unnecessary parts for refund--and you will have saved a bit of cash.

Just don't over cam the screws--the lense will break (I found this out the hard way--repairing it took a bit more time <g>).
