wiring trailer harness

Hey guys, wanted to do a hard wire for a trailer harness. I currently have a t connector in my factory harness but am using that for my line of fire light bar. I got a 4 wire harness that you make connections yourself. But got to thinking that I really need 5 wires. one for each turn signal, one for brakes, one for running light and one for flashers. Anyone know how i can connect only four wires to make all functions work? (flashers, turn signals, running lights and brakes)

thats what i was attempting to do. and I thought I had everything but the running lights did not work. And then i got to wondering how the brake lights would work just by taping into the turn signals.
