Hey toro,i bought the 12 volt set-up at auto zone for $12 i think.It comes with 20' of positive(red) wire and 5' ground(black) wire.I drilled a 1 and 1/8" hole in the panel with a metal hole saw.Set the plug in the hole and there is a oversized nut that screws on from the back side of panel on to the plug for a tight fit.ran red to the positive battery post and grounded the black to any grounded metal,or just run it the ground side of the battery.Thanks for the compliments everyone! I hope i can be of help in some way in future,you guys are the best.later
