    Going to add a Blue Sea fuse block under the hood for accessories. I want to add a Solenoid so that it is only "hot" while ignition is on. What would be the best "trigger" That I could find under the hood to activate the solenoid? Trigger does not have to be high amperage as it only activates the solenoid.

    Are you looking for power when the ignition is on or power only
    when the engine is actually running

    Ignition on would be perfect. I just don't want it "hot" when I leave the vehicle
