Powering an isolator

I have 2014 Jku and I would like to turn on my isolator with the Jeep running only. I don’t have heated seats. I want to optimize the rear cargo cigarette lighter wiring, for which the isolator will be located. Can I use m9 fuse spot and use those wires to splice into the cig lighter wires running to cargo area? Thanks for any info

Do you mean an inverter to plug in household appliances?

I want to run two batteries, one being in the back. I’m trying not to run another wire back to the rear. I don’t use the rear cargo 12v source since I have taken it out. I want to hook the wiring up to the isolator. Trouble with that is, is that I need it to come only in the run position

Do it right. Run an extra cable.
The jeep has to be about the easiest vehicle there is to run cable in. You could spend hours brainstorming on how to use the existing wire while it would take you maybe 10 minutes to just run a new line.
