Trailer and truck electric brakes problem?

I recently hooked up a Hopkins brake control to my truck along with a 7 pole Hopkins pole. My question is I followed all the directions carefully, every time I press on the brake the Hopkins brake system lights up orange. Is this normal, or is it supposed to light up green when you press the brake? My trailer brakes do work I tested them out when I hooked them up. But the orange light comes on along with the red at times. Why is this and what should I look for to solve this?

if your trailer is not hooked up it prob does not go orange. some BC's change led color to give an indication, one: you are connected, and two: how much juice you are putting to the trailer.

this seems normal for what you have.
