Can the Bolt access the 12v battery from the Cabin?

I have a Bolt 2017 and love it. I have a 1500 watt pure sine wave inverter that fits pretty nicely under the infotainment system in that pocket on the floor. I would like to run some 2 gauge wire to the 12V battery. This way when we take the Bolt camping or on road trips we can have access to 110V AC. Is there a easy or best way to run the cables through to connect to the battery?

I wired mine though the big rubber grommet and also connected a remote power meter where the inverter wire connected to the battery so I can monitor the battery voltage as well as the amount of power being pulled by the inverter. In addition, the inverter I use includes an app for monitoring usage and voltage duplicating and eliminating the need for the power meter. In addition, I can turn the inverter on and off remotely through the app. kinverch 2000W Continuous/ 4000W Peak Power Inverter 3 AC Outlets 12V to 110V Car Converter with USB Port : Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry

I hope this helps you.
