Incorrect wiring in trailer connector isata 5

Trying to hook up lights to tow my ram truck behind our Isata 5. Going to use removable lights. Using the 4 pin blade connection, brakes and 4 way flashers work but headlights only light one side. I looked at the 7 pin connector with a voltmeter. It appears that the running lights are hooked to the right turn signal connector and the right turn signal wire is hooked to the "brown" connector for running lights. Where is the easiest place to get at the wires and fix this. The socket on the back of the RV is heat shrinked so cannot tell if I can access wires there if I take it off. Not clear is this a sealed connector under the heat shrink rubber. Is there somewhere else to access the wires and swap them? It appears that the rest of the 7 pin connections are correct. Any help appreciated as heading out on Sat. and need to have this fixed so I can tow.

Addendum to above: David found two wires connected to the wrong terminals. In order to make the lights work, he swapped the two wires (brown and green) in an external extension, which allowed the lights to work properly. This doesn't fix the problem with the actual connection, as you would have to do this for everything you hooked to it.
Just another day in paradise.
