2. Probably easier to buy a separate leisure battery for true flexibility (the negative terminal on my Citroen car battery is too inaccessible for the croc clip), so any recommendations for a battery has to be min 45AH.
As others have said, it's a no go with the 12v socket. You'll just blow the fuse.
If you use the car battery there's no need to use the negative battery terminal if it's difficult to get to. You should be able to find somewhere more accessible on the engine block instead which will work just as well.
