We have a brake controller wiring kit, part # ETBC6, that will allow you to convert your 4-Way to a 6-Way round. This kit includes everything you need to convert your 4-Way and install a brake controller.
You would connect your 4-Way to the 4-Way on the back of the ETBC6. Next you would ground the white wire. You would extend the blue wire up to the cab for the brake controller output. The red wire would then be connected to your reverse light circuit or run up to the battery for a 12V power lead, depending on the trailer.
You would also need a brake controller, like the Prodigy P2 part # 90885. You would wire the blue wire on the controller to the blue wire on the 6-Way. The white wire on the controller is run to the negative terminal on the battery and the black wire is run to the positive terminal on the battery. The red wire is then connected to the stop light circuit so the controller knows when you hit the brakes.
I have added links to a help page and a video that should be pretty helpful. They are with the ETBC7 kit, but you do not need the 7th wire.
