Hello I will help you with your question,

you would connect a fused link to the positive post of the last battery (negative end) and the switch to that. Connect the lights to the switch and from the lights back to the negative post of that same battery. This will give you fused 12 volts that you can use for lighting.

Please let me know if you have further questions

Thank you
