Wiring LED 3rd brake light into Newmar Mountain Aire

Trying to wire an aftermarket LED 3rd brake light into the rear of a 1999 Newmar Mountain Aire 38ft class A. The LED light came with no wiring instructions and has black/white/green/yellow wire leads. All lights on the LED are red in color. It is supposed to be a stop/turn/headlight version. Can someone please tell me which wires go where on this LED light bar?

I do not know,but my best guess is:
Black= +12volt
White= Ground
Green= Right brake light +
Yellow= Left brake light +
The center stop light should only work when both left and right
stop light are on.
You can try this out using a 9 Volt battery on your kitchen table and see
if this works.

Generally the black is always ground in a VDC system. White would be the positive side.

I agree that black is usually the ground, (negative), in a 12V vehicle. And, I would think that the wire that lights up the third brake light would come from the brake light switch.
How many wires are on your 3rd brake light?

Well we guessed them correctly. Thanks for the advice! The black was 12v, white was ground.
