trailer lighting??

im taking, or hopefully taking my , new to me, O'day Daysailer 2 up the road, approximately 200 miles to a lake on Sunday. everything is ok to go except the trailer lights. i bought new ones, since the lights that came with boat and trailer didnt work. now i have installed the new system, following all directions and nothing. nothing works. ive tried various test, re-wiring, etc. and still nothing.
i bought a continuity or the likes tester, which alligators to one section and needles the connections. and from my car plug everything works: one lights when lights on, second lights with left turn indicator and third lights with right indicator on. so seems that is good. the wire set-up is four plug with ground wire screwed thightly to trailer frame, two wires back to left light and a ground from that section screwed tight to trailer frame and same for right side. what am i missing? any ideas? anyone? thanks for any thoughts! this is very frustrating and time consuming.
