Always put a fuse inline. I would suggest other power options, but since you have already purchased it I would suggest you mount it in the trunk and run your wire from the front to the back to power your accessories. In the trunk of my 05, I had a dual outlet wired in and mounted to the cross bar where the seat latches. On my 09, I have a 3BR USB shown the pic below. It is wired via relay and trigger wire tired to a fuse block in the trunk. (Thanks again Cap for wiring the relay).
