I think you're on the right track paul, just be sure the terminal is keyed, that is, not on all the time (marked BAT, i think it would be on all the time though) Also keep in mind you don't want it to be lit up when you have the key on the ACCY position (key back, as in engine not running, but radio on) I think a 10A fuse with 12 a wire is adequate... just double check the routing everywhere, make sure nothing is chafing. (keep the fuse as close to powersource as possible!!)
The run on situation is from backfeeding from the regulator back into the ignition circuit, it's an easy fix though... but not necesary if you are running an internally regulated alternator...
Do a search on this subject in the electrical forum..
