You have two options, Johnny. First option is to run the red and black wires directly to the battery. Second option is to run a set of cables from the battery to the three terminal on the right side of your picture (ground to the center, and positive to bottom - making the "hot spot" you want!) then run black and red cables from the contactor to the terminal bar. Bottom line is those two cables have to connect to your battery either directly or via the terminal bar. You should have smaller wires that also connect to the winch contactor and on the your control switches. There is also a Polaris option that consists of the cables needed to go from the battery to the terminal bar.
