Fuse Panel Replacement

I just replaced a 44 yr. old converter. I think I also need to replace the fuse panel. The problem is it's all old bus fuses and the new ones and even the new OEM ones don't hold the amperage that I need. 2 of the fuses are 30 amp each. Ideas??

There is not too much that can go wrong with a fuse panel. Why do you want to change it? If you replace it with a breaker panel you can get any configuration of ratings you want.

But back to the original question, why?

fused panel

You can get 30 amp and larger fuse blocks. Type AGU 30 amp fuse block into the search engine. They come in single and multiple parallel fuse arrangements. I used them when redoing our '74 Argosy.

The fuse panel in those old trailers is part of the Univolt assembly.

There are some dark areas in the fuse panel that require a little nudging sometimes to get them to work. I don't like nudging electricity. I will look at the panel website mentioned and see what I can find. Thanks. Yea my old univolt was humming like Hank Willaims Jr. on Jack Daniels.
