Need help to wire a 7 pin receptical

I currently have a 6 pin on my truck for my electric brakes. I am buying a new trailer with 7 pin flat prongs. Can someone help me with info to do this my self. I would bring it to the shop but this is the weekend and I need to get this trailer first thing monday morning. It is 25" airstream and I don't think I should chance not using the electric brakes.

Thanks
Steve

slk...The Airstream Corp site has diagrams for the 7 pin connectors for various model years. Attached is a link to the most recent 7 pin connector layout. Good luck.

On my 99 suburban I have a heavy blue wire and a heave orange wire. I am asuming the blue is the brake wire what is the orange for? The wires for the lights I think I have figured out

The orange is probably an auxiliary wire. Take a look at this site it has most all configurations:

Dexter Axle has a good diagram too:
