Both ideas from here.

Had to clean out the holes with an M6 tap bit attached to my drill. Rails from Amazon ($105 for two with hardware).

Power and ground come into the rocker, then you just jumper to the other devices in series or parallel?

Looks that way ,ground goes to switch to light the on indicator, wonder what kind of amps that switch is rated to carry. Neat thing is you can plug a heavy like a air compressor in and watch the volts to see if there is much voltage drop.....Jack

You could wire the two charging outlets hot all the time and have the switch turn the volymeter on if you want to check battery condition.

Did you have to drill any new holes in the track? or just use what they gave you?

Yes, I had to drill a couple holes in the track to get it to line up with the pre-drilled/threaded holes in the bed.

Not a bad idea. looks good in the bed. I’m trying to see if I can get a 110 outlet for an air compressor so when I air down I can air back up quick. Was it pretty simple to run wire to the battery?

Very easy. Placed the in-line fuse closer to the battery.

How big an air compressor are you planning to run on the 400watt inverter outlet? It can not be very big at all check the amp rating of your compressor, 400watts is good for at most 3.3 amps, and there will be a inrush motor load on startup that still might trip off inverter…….Jack

Just a cheap pancake one from HF. Enough to fill tires. It just requires a normal outlet

A normal outlet in your home supplies 15 amps the inverter supplied outlet in the gladiator supplies 3.3 amps, just check the rating before spending your money. I think a 12V air compressor with a high duty rating is sort of the way to go, BUT, I have no idea what a cheap HF compressor draws amp wise, and I guess you can always just try it…….Jack
