is it possible to make 12v or 110V outlet "hot" all the time. it was like this in my ford explorer, and it was so convenient to charge my phone at night. i have a 2011 compass.

110v no, you would not want that because the inverter built in would be runing all the time. They use a fair bit of power even with load and you'd have a dead battery soon enough.

As for the 12V if there is a stand alone relay then it can. If its controlled by the TIPM without an accessible relay then no. I have not see the wiring diagram for the Compass. You can check the vehicle info and under hood charts to see if there is a relay. Pulling the right one will kill the 12V outlet. Adding a jumper between the hot and load terminals is all thats neccessary then. I did this in a Caravan years ago.
