Default Light up hitch cover wiring

I bought a new hitch cover the other day and it lights up when I hit the breaks, but I want it to light up whenever the lights are on. Theres two wires coming out of the the hitch cover. How should I wire it so it comes on when the lights are on.

Well, you need to first get a new plug that has all four connections, and then you need to splice the green (what looks to be +) into the brown wire of the new plug, the white goes to the same spot. The brown on the trailer connection is for markers only though, so it wont come on any more when you hit the brakes
