What do you mean with field box ? Is that a box for glow motors on which you have a lead battery (usually 6-10 Ah), a power panel, drowers for tools and places for radio and starter ? Or it it a box for electric motors, where you have a lead battery (usually 30-50 Ah) and a charger for lipos?
At the end what do you need to wire up?
Generic questions generic answers.
It could be helpful if you post photos to clarify your needs.

As you say charging system in the field box I presume it is for charging lipos.
Find a diagram with my suggestion for wiring.
Remember : always connect positive with positive and negative with negative, otherwise you will cause a short circuit (dangerous as battery could explode).
Switches are required not to leave socket to external or chargers under tension.
