LED bed lights wiring question

15’ 350 Platinum. I have a set of LED bed lights I mounted in my bed. I originally had them hooked up to one of my AUX switches and that’s become a PITA cuz I have to have the key on to power up the bed lights. Unless someone knows a mod to have power to those at all times?(another question lol) anyway...I bought a waterproof switch for the bed and I came across I a thread but I can’t find it now of how someone tapped into and witch wire in the back for constant power so I can just simply hit the switch. Any help with that I would appreciate it Thanks.

I'd run a power lead with fuse off the battery myself.

I have mine tapped into my rear parking lights, when I hit the key fob or turn the parking lights on they light up. The only thing that’s kind of annoying is they shut off after about 15 seconds unless you manually turn the parking light on.

I have mine hooked up to the running board light plugs on each side of the truck. It works off the same circuit as my high mount cargo light. I also added led strip light above my running boards on the same plug. Works great.
