Inverter main fuse
I recently popped an inverter fuse. Turns out mine are a Shawmut Ampsurge A13X250 250a fuse. This crosses to a Bussmann 4XC83 from Grainger. $68 plus tax each. I haven't yet mounted the new one, but it appears to be very close in all dimensions and should be an easy replacement.

RE: Inverter main fuse
John,

What loads are you running that require over 3000W of power?

─░mage ─░mage If you are replacing a fuse, and even if you are not, add the proper fuse holder. BB used a piece of rubber and a metal clamp that is a dead short to the battery if it comes just a little loose. Pix attached.

Again, while you are at it, install a rubber cover over the back of thee hot jump terminal. It is inviting a massive spark if you happen to ground it with a wrench.

Duh!! The margarita machine!! What else!! Big Grin Seriously, the chargers come back through these fuses on mine.



Good points, Ron. I'll have to study mine a little to see how to do that properly.
