    I'd take the wires under the center console and connect them up to the back of the orgional accessory socket

    Yeah that will be fine. All those electrical items probably draw about 3 amps each so will be no heavy loading

    I'd suspect that there is an additional perm live in the boot panel as this is where the tow bar electrics hook up if you require an alternate hook up point.
