Power for camera

Looking to DIY a wireless camera on my Sunseeker and need 12v power on the rear for the camera. What might be the easy way to get power to the camera?? Thanks in advance

12 volts

I use the rear tv power hook up for a second camera. There is 12 volt under the bed to access off the coverter if norhing else.

Driiled a 1/4" hole with a 1/8" slit in the corner of the bed platform, did the same on the foot of the bed to go to the 12 volt plug. This allowed me to slide the wire in the bed platform. I am in a 2300 where the bed backs up against the back wall under the back window where my second camera is. If I was pulling power from another source I would prefer to use power that is switched on only while driving.

I only thought of the outside I guess I didn't think of an inside mount. Looking out the window? Will that work. Inside?
