    I purchased the Stobes N More CSP/PRO switch to run my strobes. The switch has a black and red wire. Can I get power out of my fuse panel for the switch or do I need to run all the way to the battery like the the Power Supply feed?

    You should take the red wire to an ignition feed in the fuse panel only if you're using an add-a-fuse to do it safely. The black should be ground.

    So if I use an inline fuse before the switch thats ok and what do you mean by an ignition feed?

    The feed should turn on and off with the ignition, so you don't kill the battery.
