Cool Spare Fuses

I was recently reading a past thread concerning fuses.

PROTAGONIST stated he had researched a standard list of required fuses.

I would appreciate it if you would share that list.

Thanks,
SGT DAVE

"Researched" is an awfully grandiose term for "bought a set of 5 of each amperage at my local Pep Boys."

After a kerfluffle with fuzes last fall where they were popping faster than I could plug them in.. It is a long story and I am too embarrassed to go into it further. I ended up with a packet containing 7 each, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 Amp fuses and supplemented those with some 3 and 7.5 Amp fuses.

Between the fuze panels under the rear lounge, the panel under the drivers seat, and the main Sprinter fuze panel all of those and perhaps a few more can be found. When I was having my kerfluffle I went through 10 AMP fuzes as if they were on a fire sale.

I tried to purchase slow blow 30 amp at my local hardware shop today. They are for my hitch jack. Thing is nowhere on the little case did it say slow blow and if I put wrong kind in, I could ruin the jack. Is that something that would be written on the actual fuse?

Either the fuze or the packaging should indicate Slo Blo or slow blow. The problem with a regular fuze is not that they are likely to cause damage to the hitch jack rather they will blow too quickly and render the hitch jack useless. I don't know exactly what fuze you are looking for but a quick Google search turned up these 10 AMP Slow Blow fuzes from Amazon.c0m

I'm in the same boat of trying to find "slow-burn" fuzes (30-amp) and cannot seem to find them at any of the local auto places. I'm also concerned that a standard 30-amp fuze could hurt my jack, I don't want any part of that.

Any input on this would be great!

I think you are looking for (click here)
A standard 30A fuse won't hurt your jack, but might blow prematurely when lifting a heavy load.

I bought 30 amp slow blows from the big orange store (Home Depot) recently.
