Would someone please give me some links to the 15B and 10A fuse taps that would work with the Interior Fuse Box? Thank you.

There is no 15A or 10A fuse tap. You remove the fuse where you're putting the tap and put the removed fuse in the tap. And then put the fuse to whatever you're running power to next to it.

These taps can be plugged into the fuse box facing either way, but only one way is correct, which some YouTube videos fail to mention. Plug it in backwards and the currents for the both the original and new circuit will pass thru the fuse for the original circuit. This doesn't really matter if you're adding a dash cam which draws 1A to a circuit that has a 10A fuse, as the original 10A fuse could likely handle the additional load. (The only negative consequence is if the 10A fuse blows power is lost to both circuits.)

But if you're adding a 10A load to an existing 10A circuit, the original 10A fuse could see up to 20A if tap is backwards. To determine if tap is in the right way, install it with the fuse for the original circuit removed from the tap and only the fuse for the new load inserted (make sure it's in the right slot on the tap). If the tap wire supplying the new circuit is hot, the tap is installed correctly. If tap wire is dead, the tap is backwards.
