When I bought my 1983 trailer in 2009, all of the connections were corroded so badly that I had to replace the tail lights and most of the running lights.

Open up the fixtures, strip the wires to clean copper and test vs. a good ground.

Start with grounds to the tail lamps, then move on to stop/turn using a jumper battery and clip leads at the 7pin connector.

Expect nothing is intact. Write down the wires that are OK. Eventually, you'll find only 1 or 2 broken wires, but all of the connections need cleaning or replacement.

This might help a little:

Four-Way Trailer Wiring Connection Kit

No lights but a new wiring harness.

Also check the termination box that your 7 wire pig tail goes to, usually just under the front of the trailer "box".

Good luck!!! Trailer light issues are never fun, so be as patient as you can!!!
