Fuse box question

I'm hardwiring a dashcam.

Here are the toys I have:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...IHGP69UFE&th=1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So I'm looking at my instrument panel fuse box (inside the passenger area, not under the hood or trunk).

Now after some reading, I learned that fuse F17 or F18 are the ones to tap for this exact project. Except for whatever reason, I can't squeeze my add a circuit into that space because of the giant trunk relay fuse.

Because of the Pruveeo part I have, can I just plug that into one of the spare fuses slots, like F9 to F12 and call it a day after grounding it?

This seems really simple...but when it comes to electrical stuff I prefer to triple check.

TYIA!

When I checked the fuse box those are the only two that are switched with accessory power.

I ran the wire to the console and tapped into the front power port.

Yea, I don't want to do any soldering. Is there another option other than this fuse tap? This one is super bulky and I can't fit it in. I don't want to have to go to the trunk fusebox, but I can...
