A few different threads have covered a lot of information regarding permanently installed trickle chargers.

Make sure that the negative lead is on top of the BMS (Battery Monitory System), not directly installed on the negative battery pole.

Also, depending on the the capacity of the battery being charged, it might take a few days before the green light goes solid green (not flashing).

Living in a winter cold region, I installed 2 male/female Noco plug adapters permanently on the plastic part below the right and left headlights (below the head lights and on top of the metal bumper). This plastic part is easily removable (two small bolts inside both front wheel wells, then unclip at clipping points). I drilled a 2 inch hole on either side of the plastic piece (their is a section where their is more space "below the headlights"). With this setup, I can plug in an extension cord for the charger (on the right side "passenger side" of the truck) or the engine block heater (on the left side "driver side" of the truck) without having dangling wires from the truck. Other benefit is I have access to the charging function even on the road, away from home.

Nice setup. I was tired of popping the hood and did something similar with the noco adapter, went to the rear wheel well liner, just have to remember to unplug before I hit the road.

You can also leave it attached. I do it with mine. Leaving it attached was the only way the most recent update would install OTA for me.
+1 on leaving it attached.
My NOCO 5 is attached with ring terminals to the battery and gets plugged in every single day.
