Default Need help installing radar detector and dashcam

Hi all - new member here. Got my trailhawk just a few days ago and I was wondering how to go about installing my radar detector. The user manual is pretty useless and I wasn't able to find a diagram, and doing a Google Search yields no results as far as getting a KL specific fusebox diagram.

Here's what I'm trying to do: I want to install my Escort 9500ix the same way I had it in the A4. The radar detector basically tapped into a fuse slot using an add-a-circuit connector. Hooked it up to ignition so the radar only turned on when the car was on.

The DVR however was hooked up to an always-hot fuse slot so I can use its motion detection/parking mode functionality (for up to 30 or so hours). I did use an uninterrupted power supply with it, so it would turn off the camera if it detected my battery voltage has dropped to 11.6v. It was a great setup that made everything automatic and kept me from waking up to a dead battery.

Can someone help me locate which fuse slots are always hot and acc? I'd greatly appreciate the help! Looks like jeep forgot a lot of things.. there aren't even any labels on the fusebox!! Thank you.

underneath the hood, take off fuse box cover on drivers side, possibly what you are seeking is printed inside the fuse box cover.
