I would hook it up straight off of the battery.

You could run an on/off switch in the cabin.

I don't want to do a switch in the cabin. I want help with hookung up to a switched / ignition on terminal in the fuse box. Can you help me with that? 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7

You could hook into the ignition switch itself, let me see if I have a wiring diagram for you.

Do you have any recommendations for a fuse tap in a spare spot in the fuse box under the hood? Need at least a 15 amp
