I have an opposite problem with you. I installed an after market real view camera and didn't want a cable to tangle in the middle of the dash so I hard wire it. Now the monitor doesn't turn off with the ignition key. But I've found out that it doesn't drain battery much so I left it like that.

Anyway, what I tried to say is it might be easier for you to tab one circuit out from the fuse box and attach to another female lighter outlet. Since you will tap it from the fuse box like my monitor, it'll be constantly on. Total cost will probably be around $15 (you don't really need a trim removal tool for just that fuse box).

See instruction in the link here.
