I need a good block. I also need to know where and how to hook it up. Does it go inline with battery cable or come off the smaller line? Thanks

First you must consider if your accessories need to be powered all the time, or only when the key is ON, or if when key is ON or ACC. If "all the time", you can run a fused wire directly from battery. For ACC/ON, I'd power the distribution through a fused relay, and power the relay with a source that meets the ON/ACC requirement. When the relay is powered, your accessories have power.

They will all be on a relay and only powered on with key.
