Help on wiring of Bushtec?

I need help from someone that has installed a Bushtec hitch on an LT. The wiring instructions from Bushtec were clear except they state “connect the White/Green to the Gray/Black on the LT. The White/Blue to the Gray/Yellow on the LT. There is a
Gray/Yellow but not a Gray/Black. My question is the LT has a Gray/Blue, is that the one that should be connected to the White/Green on the harness? My guess is it’s a type O on Bushtecs part? The other thing is they say to grab the connections for the four wires at the plug in the tail light. Any guidance on a good way to connect and run to the isolator that will be mounted under the seat. I searched the forums and only found the Dauntless wiring and I’d like to put this mess back together in the morning rather than wait til Bushtecs opens on Monday. Thanks John email: [email protected]

Wiring

Hans
Found and printed your post the day I bought the hicth (thanks for the great link too) but it show as a Dauntless relay and didn't know if the colors are the same. The Bushtec is a primary white and with a color stripe. If the Dauntless green is the same as the White/Green on the Bushtec relay then the Gray/Blue is the wire I need intead of the "Gray/Black" stated on the Bushtec installmanual. Did you grab the wires to tap at the tail light and run them back up under the seat to the relay? Thanks again.

I reread the post I sent you to this morning and it needs a little clarification,
the picture I referred to was the one Steve posted of his Bushtec plug,
the picture I attached is the paper I have on my bike
for the wiring harness with the Dauntless hitch/Bushtec trailer.

The following are the color codes from the Bushtec website.


13. WIRE HARNESS COLOR CODES







Following are the primary wiring harness functions identified by color.





GREEN: RUNNING & TAILLIGHTS

WHITE: CHASSIS OR BATTERY GROUND

BLUE: BRAKE LIGHTS

YELLOW: RIGHT TURN SIGNAL

BROWN: LEFT TURN SIGNAL

BLACK: INTERIOR LIGHT
