I don't know about best way, but i've just Y-ed my main pack to all my 12v equipment. It works for me. I've thought about having a power station/plug strip (think household power strip) with Deans connections, but i have most stuff hidden away in my GS. So i just run wires and cover it up.

Some folks use an auto/lawn mower battery. If I did that, I'd definitely look into making a connection box. I'm sure others will chime in.

Use a star wiring scheme, where all connections origin from a single point close to the battery. Do not daisy chain, it's a recipe for video noise.
