I am not aware of the existence of an adapter, but one could be easily constructed.

You will need to find a vehicle-side socket to receive the plug from your trailer. We do not carry them, so you will need to obtain one locally. You will also need a vehicle to vehicle taillight converter like part # 118158 and a trailer side 4-pole like part # 18004. You would then wire the converter as shown in the diagram I provided.

Using this adapter will separate the turn signal back out so that the separate turn signals on your trailer will operate correctly.
