I have a VW Caddy panel van 999cc TSI petrol year 2016

I am looking to get a leisure battery that is used for appliances and devices. Id like to charge it from my main battery while driving (not when parked obviously).

Can someone advise:

1) if there is a gromet/ hole from the footwell to the engine compartment where I can feed a cable to connect the better in engine compartment with the leisure battery
I will be putting inside the panel van cargo area?(this is so i don't have to drill any unnecessary holes ibn the body of my van)


2) If there is an issue due to 2016 model and newer have a smart alternator which messes with me attaching the two batteries?

There must be kits for this but I am not a camper conversion expert. It needs to be carefully done so as to not upset the digital CAN BUS system.
