I wired my Tuthill this way: positive wire from battery, in-line fuse, wire under truck, wire through hole in bed, wire plug/socket in bed, in-line switch, wire connected to Tuthill.
The in-line switch is not acutually needed if the switch on the Tuthill is easily reached.
I connected to the driver-side battery to avoid getting the wiring close to the exhaust system.
I also ran a matching negative wire to the battery to assure full amperage.
Works like a charm.
On the Tuthill, I also added fuel filters to keep the equipment free of contaminants and water in the fuel. I run all the truck's fuel through the auxiliary tank for several reasons: it keeps the fuel fresh, and it assures the fuel that reaches the F250's tanks is well filtered for sediment and water. Using the auxiliary tank also makes it easy to treat the fuel for any additives I might need, including Biobar for microbes should they ever become a problem.
