12 volt help for an electrical idiot

I hope this isn't too redundant but I am trying to replace a 12 volt plug (male end) on a coffee maker that was "melted" in the socket of my 2005 Safari. There was an electrical issue with the trailer that was resolved and a new 12 volt socket installed. I have no idea, however, what fuse (amps) I should use in the new appliance plug. I have tried to reach the manufacturer with no results. Anyone using a MarinePro (RoadPro) stainless coffeemaker that can tell me the fuse amps? Thanks. Joseph

I don't have that coffee pot but we do have a crock pot which has a 10 amp fuse in the socket.

Doesn't matter how many amps the coffee maker draws, what matters is the size of the wire going to the socket.

Can you pull the socket out enough to see the wire size?
