The RIGrunners are actually from West Mountain Radio, though I, too,
bought mine from Powerwerx.  Powerwerx' website works like it should
unlike many other online vendors.

I have the 4008 which has 9 sets of Anderson Powerpoles, one of which is
marked "DC IN".  The 4008 does NOT have the switching, only the over/under
voltage alarms.  All are on at the same time.  I assume it's a simple bus
and that if I plugged the supply line into another port, it would still
work, but I haven't tried that.

Works FB.  Have all my scanners "powerpoled" as well, which cut way down
on wall-warts (and heat inside the old Pro-7!).  Still need to tidy the
wires some more ... and get solar backup ...
