I used a single gang outlet box (may want to switch to a double to make wiring easier) with a blank cover plate and managed to fit 2 switches, a 12 plug, and a battery status indicator on it. I have leads that come out of the box to connect to a battery that sits clams battery bracket. I also ran the wire from my tube light through the pole so it is almost entirely hidden. Provides a clean look, doesn't take up space like a box does, and doesn't get in the way. I will try to post pics tomorrow.
