So I am a dummy when it comes to electrical stuff so bear with me....

I noticed on the fuse box there is a 20 and 10 amp accessory fuse.

Can I just use a fuse tap into one of those, ground the other wire and ta-da?

Should I use the 10a or 20a?

Are these spare fuses keyed?

Basically yes. You should connect to the pre-fuse side of the fuse holder - easy to determine with a test meter after you remove the fuse.

I have heard there are some unused spaces in the fuse holder, though I have not looked.

There is a connector attached to a harness above the left rear tire that is connected to the light circuit. I used it for a license light. You could use it for your whip and have a convenient place to disconnect when you garage or trailer.

Chad, depends on the amp draw of your whip (s). I have 2 four footers coming in to mount on my Ace that are about 4 amps each. I personally would put them on something other than the tail light circuit.
Yow! I was just looking at fully-lighted LED whips that pull 500mA. Yeah, for 8 amps you would want a dedicated circuit or a relay. Relay may be beyond the capabilities of our OP friend.
