One is for brakes and I think the other is for a 12volt hot line. I am not sure what the fourth is for.

Yeah, one is for Trailer Brakes, one for 12V Source to charge a trailer battery or run electronics from the truck battery, and the other is usually labeled "aux". I have my "aux" hooked to my reverse lights. On my boat trailer, it locks out the hydraulic brakes when driving in reverse, on my camper, it actuates a relay for back-up lights on the back of the trailer.

I didn't realize it qualified as a "mystery"... Sweet. Now I just have to find 2 girls and another guy from R-F and a big talking dog and we can drive around in my truck (the mystery wagon) and help random people solve other mysteries on a daily basis....

Sorry, bored at work...
