Water Heater to Trailer wire colors *Help*

I was finally able to get my 2006 Feather Weight 26S out and do a pre-flight on it. I found that I didn't drain the water from the heater tank this winter. 1st time in 7 years that I didn't drain it. Pretty big leak in the seam of the water heater tank. I pulled it out the entire water heater and had the seam re-welded. Went to put it back in and found that the 4 wires going to the trailer were not color matched. That's what I get for not having enough light. Anyway, the orange and white wires are color matched for the +12v switches from the Gas / Electric switches. The other two coming from the heater are blue and green. The two remaining trailer wires are red and brown. Anyone know which to connect to which? Help please....

I can't help with the wiring, but do you have the book that came with the water heater? It may tell you what you are needing to know.

Thanks for the pics

The pics are good, but obviously I didn't explain myself correctly. I am talking about the connections that feed through the back into the crawlspace that houses the hot water tank. There are 4 wires that have quick disconnects on them to separate them from the trailer wiring. They are orange, white, blue and green. They connect to the trailer wiring that feeds into the floorboard to orange, white, brown, and red wires.
