Go under the dash with a dmm and turn the key on and off with each wire. The12volt.com can be helpful sometimes.

But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.

Why does it have to be under 10 amp? I would guess that the trucks ignition wire would be less than 10 amps

on the 2010 tahoe if you want to find a switched wire you can grab one from the bcm but you must use a relay as this wire wont supply much current. same goes for the ignition harness im pretty sure they are all light gauge wires that you dont wanna tap into

Any 10 amp fuse should work. I've had my duals running fine for a year

Green plug Brown or Pink wire on the top of your bcm (located left hand side underdash) will be switched test with dmm to confirm. this will only suport enough current to tigger a relay.

then grab constant from behind the panel on the left side of the dash. this will allow you to power any load that needs to be switched up to 10 amps.

Other wise just use a fuse tap in a switched fuse location and grab your power from the unfused side
