on my trailers i run the breakaway wires with the trailer side.. large blue -trailer brakes, black can be a aux. wire if needed, white-ground for everything, green-left turn, yellow-right turn and brown is tail lamps.
the breakaway wires, on mine one always gets split into the blue brake wire and the other one goes to the ground(white).

But you can use any of the wires for different things.
