Trickle Charger Input Plug?

I need to put in an external plug to keep my battery topped up. It's a Rans S7LS but this is the smartest group on the net so I'm asking here. Fabric cover of course and the battery is in fuselage behind baggage compartment. I'm just not sure how to secure an input plug to the fuselage tubing. The easy out is of course to poke a hole in the fabric and dangle a wire out but that sucks really. There must be a more creative way. Any ideas?

Can you install an inspection ring on the bottom of the plane and just leave the wire dangle there? Or run it up right behind the seat and zip tie it there so its easy to plug in.

The battery tenders come with a couple different pigtails that attach to the terminals. . Can you just extend the wires through the fuse to come out beside your baggage area by the back seat? Mine comes out right behind my seat.

I think you guys got it. I don't know why I thought I'd have to run it outside or have a flush plug through the skin.  I can easily run a pair of wires through the baggage area and tie wrap to a tube inside. That'll do it. Thanks TJ and Joey.

I have mine in the engine compartment. Negative wire grounded to the engine. Positive wire connected to the positive side of the starter solenoid. Can get some pictures if you want. Charges the battery fine.
