No I just ran the wires to an empty accessory switch along with the LED wires from my new(ish) set of speakers that I hadn't bothered wiring up until today. The audio has been wired just not the LEDs.

Yeah and now that I checked I actually went with the $35 "3 in 1" LED. Haven't had it in the water at night with it wired up yet so I'm not sure how it performs in terms of brightness. I'll post pics when I do. However, it has been installed but not wired since the beginning of the season. We've been out about 5 times and no leaks. Even had it docked at the lake for a weekend.

For $35 and not having to drill through the hull or do anything else permanent I'm pleased. If it ever stops working I'll just yank it and put the original drain plug back in.

Yeah I was looking at buying one of those but I was afraid of it not being bright enough, as others have said drain plug LEDs do not work that well. That is why I went the route of making my own, I would be very interested to see some pics of the EBay drain plug LEDs and I should have some pics of my homemade one next week.

wires run from the tabs to a sealed terminal block and then through the plug and to another terminal block mounted above the ballast pumps for easy access.
