Reverse switch wiring help

I've got a T176 tranny, and D300 TC and trying to wire them up. I'm using a brand new painless wiring harness, and the backup and 4x4 harness isn't exactly plug and play, as the painless harness has an extra wire, and doesn't have a plug. I ordered a 3 pin weather pack plug to join the two, but now the question is, what to do with the extra wire, which I assume is the black one. Should I assume red goes to red, white to white, and orange to orange?

And my installation book that came with the new harness was recycled for me by the mice in my garage.....

Interesting they include a ground.. Certainly not needed for backup light although the NSS runs through that harness if you have an automatic.

I would just just loop the end over and coverit with some shrink tubing. Or cut the wire out but then you might find a use for it later.
