The 12v positive leads are ususally used to charge trailer battery or operate backup lights. It can also be tapped into the backup light circuit on the tow vehicle to disengage surge brakes while backing up.
Most trailer lights use this color code
Black--positive for light function (i.e. tail or marker lights)
Red--positive for signal function (i.e. brake lights or turn signals)
Hope this helps someone
