    You can use an add-a-fuse to the interior fuse block, and tap off an ignition hot circuit (there are several). However, this should only be used to trigger a relay, not for the lights themselves. For that, you should have a separate fused connection directly to the battery.

    The add-a-fuse units are only rated for 10A, though I don't think I'd feel comfortable with that. I use mine currently with a 2A fuse.

    yes its just to opperate the solenoid so any one that is available in the small fuse block inside will do as i am going to use one of the blank spots right above it for the switch
