You use your hands to attach the lights, not your knee.

All this time I though I needed to use my knee to connect everything. Haha maybe I'll connect the lights for the bed together until I'm able to move around

You shouldn't need a fuse they don't draw much. For the bed light though I'd run a a fused Hotwire off the battery thru a switch to keep them safe

Yeah, you can run 10 LED's and still not draw the power of 1 incandescent bulb, so interior wise your fine, but exterior needs to be fused separately.
Ideally you would want to do a relay for the exterior lights too, switch or no switch.

Ok that's what I was thinking just running the bed lights straight from the battery with a fuse but then the negative wire would just be a ground right? (I'll just look at my kc's to get and idea
