12V power and connections for Jack HD antenna

We bought the Jack antenna and it is worth every penny. Pulls in crystal clear channels that the factory Winegard antenna never sees.
I' m just going to mount the antenna on a board and place it outside when watching TV. I need some ideas for tapping into the required 12 units other than using a separate battery. Also, will this antenna work if I connect the antenna (out) to the cable inlet on the outside of the trailer?

I installed a 12 outlet (AKA cigarette lighter plug) in our bedroom by tapping into the lighting circuit in the cargo hold.

The wires are in plain sight. I don't run much of a load on the outlet, cell phone charger and a weather radio.
