Where to find power?

Hey guys I installed a recon tailgate bar with the scanning turn signals, but I have not yet got it working.

My problem is that I have not found a hot wire to run to the light bar. I tried using the trailer hookup, but this didn't work.

I have been told to run it to the battery, but I want it on key power without having to turn a switch on and off every time.

"tap a fuse" has also been suggested, but I am looking for more info on these

So my question is does anybody know the best way to get keyed power to one of these?
