depends on wether the unit is under warranty or not, if it is, then an auxillary lighter cord, if not, nothing, I would strongly suggest you put in or get an auxillary fuse box and a relay, as the wires that are in the AV are for  a specific purpose and rated so, pull to many amps off of one set of wires and you could have a melt down which is no fun at all, lol.  If your planning on adding other lights or electronic gizmos, would be a good idea.  They are about 8 bucks or so at the auto store.  I'm sure there are auto parts stores in Des Moines, lol.   This is something we can take care of there if you so desire.

I have plenty of wire to make  the hookup then, think about the auxillary fuse box and relay though.

I am going to open this up to people that are going to be in Des Moines first so I will not have to mess with shipping! I have a brand new chrome gas tank cover that did not look like I thought it was going to with my Harley emblems that Iw ould like to get rid of for 25$ let me know if you would like to pick it up at the GTG!

I know this is a for sale item and there is a section for that however I would like to first try and get rid of it without having to ship it!
