Default Wiring a battery for reract servo

I will be using mechanical retracts on my next plane,and the makers suggest using a dedicated battery just for the retract servo so the main pack won't get drained if the retracts hang up. How does one go about this? My first idea was to use a Y-lead and seperate the signal wire ,cut the + and - wires on one plug which would plug into the receiver.The other plug would connect to the extra battery .Is this correct? Also what capacity battery is neede. The plane is a large msutang model. Cheers.
