We changed the wires at the truck plug so we could plug into a standard vehicle! The 78 has a cord that unplugs at both the trailer and truck, we changed this cord at the truck end!
The RV industry standard was changed from the configuration you had on your trailer, to the one on you tow vehicle. Lights seem to work, but brakes, charge line, and backup lights are in different places.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

This is what yours should have been when built.
