Default Newbie help with wirelessone power source

I just picked up my '13 Ram 2500 6.7, CC, LB, 4x. I've got the bags in but I don't know where to get a good power source for the compressor. The "lug" supplied with the kit doesn't fit into the fuse block. I've read different opinions about where and how but very ANXIOUS about getting it wrong.

Any help??

Thanks http://www.ramforumz.com/images/smilies/thk.gif

You can attach a fused power wire to the 3/8" terminal at the end of your fuse block or you can go directly to the battery.

Best thing is to get yourself a fuse tap made for your fuse type, then find with a voltmeter a fuse that is only on when the engine ignition key is in the accessories or run position, this way if you park your truck for a while and the weather changes or you develop a leak in your bags, your pump will not work and kill your battery, these wireless One units keep a 5lb load in your bags and when the temperature changes the pressure can go up or down, and it will add or remove air automatically. If you can't find a fuse that you can use, let me know I will check which fuse I used for mine.

I took a minute with a pair of dikes and needle nose pliers to modify the fuse tap that came with the kit to work with the new little factory fuses. Can't remember which one I tapped in to, just looked at the list on the fuse box lid and picked one that was switched hot.

Have had no problems with it.

I connected my compressor through a relay to keep from drawing too much from the switched circuit.

My guy doesn't really know which one to use. If you could check which you used that would be very helpful.
