    Spent the whole day wiring, and putting the plow on my dodge. Went pretty good happy how it looks on the truck. Have some minor things to finish up with the wiring. Where is a good place to wire the ACC cable that comes off the Vehicle harness for the controller? Right now I have it jammed into the 10A Cruise control in the fuse box... But I would rather have it wired into the cab into something.. CIGARETTE lighter ? would that work.. ALSO the truck is a 2003,2500, on my other truck I ran 2 battery's but on this one I cant find anywhere to put a spare battery because my air box is so big. Will I be fine with one battery or what? it has the heavy-duty snowplow, alternator package

    That's what you need.
    Always try and find an ignition hot circuit, you'll forget to turn off the clicker and it'll drain your battery
    As far as one batt, you'll be fine. However, you need to run the truck for a little bit at higher rpms after your done plowing to recharge. Or install a battery charger, and plug it in when your done.

    . So I just plug that into my fuse box? Like into my cruise control or what I'm a little confused. Or does that acc wire go somewhere in my truck under the dash.

    Yes, and the wire "hanging" is what you use for your ign hot circuit.

    Remove your cruise fuse, install that tap with the same amp fuse, then add another fuse for the second circuit and your good to go
