    I just bought these two items:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Excelvan-Du...232171?hash=item35fb96d26b:g:BhQAAOSwll1Wy8N4

    http://www.amazon.com/E-Bro-12-24V-..._cp_107_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0ZN4N9MTR9WB0C5EFYKE

    The first will be installed in the rear of the center console for my kids and the second will be installed in one of the blanks under my dash.

    I'm using whatever ground is closest to each and I'll be daisy chaining the hot of both together and then running a home run out to my blue sea aux fuse panel under the hood.
    What size fuse should I use with both daisy chained together on their own circuit??

    Lastly, would it be worth it for me to splice into an existing hot somewhere under the dash without having too much of a draw instead of running out to the engine bay??

    A 5 amp fuse would be plenty, more than enough. Use a #16-14 wire and you'll be good to go.

    You're welcome. Just beware of metal edges when snaking the wire.
