I need some help figuring out how to wire something up to my Rx

So this may sound kinda dumb but I would like to wire something in a way where it plugs into the Rx like a servo but Activates, either on or off, from my Tx. Now I tried wiring a positive wire and then the signal wire in and realized that wouldn't work because the signal wire sends just that... a signal not pure voltage. I tried this once but I still could bbe wrong

Essentially I would like to wire a motor to my Rx, a micro motor, to activate when I toggle a switch on and off. If there is a simple way/product that I could do this to please help me out.

Frankly I just need to turn power 100% on power 100% off.

Do you mean the power for the main battery? I'm somewhat confused about what you are trying to do.

I would like to toggle on and off through the rx power a motor, or a load in general. I would like to turn on a light or a micro bilge pump for my boat.

There are light kits for aircraft that plug directly into an open ch on a rx and the intensity or lighting scheme can be altered by switch, nob or epa. I'm more than certain one is available for water craft.
