See if this will meet your needs. It's rated at 32V but that should be ok for a 12V application:
http://www.amazon.com/Bussmann-MDL30.../dp/B00139MFXM

A Note on Voltage Rating
All fuses have a voltage rating. To maintain safety, this voltage rating should not be exceeded in application, although it is acceptable to use a higher rated fuse in a lower voltage application. For example: A fuse rated for 125 volts is appropriate in household (110V) or automotive (12V), while a fuse rated for 32 volts is appropriate for automotive (12V), but not for household (125V). Always replace a fuse with one of the same or higher voltage rating.

I found this at the cooper-busman site:
http://www.cooperindustries.com/cont...s_Ceramic.html

About halfway down the page are the time delay glass fuses.

Personally, I think I'll convert mine to the new blade type, it's getting too hard to find these old glass tube automotive fuses.

They are time delay because if they weren't then if there was a drag on the motor it would blow the fuse right away. It's designed to allow some overload so the device can start. Continued overload will blow the fuse. You wouldn't want this for electronic stuff, you'd want a fast-blo fuse for that.

Thanks Richw46 I have a couple fo local leads I'll pursue on Monday. If not, I'll follow your tip (and link) at Amazon. Much appreciated. Do you know if there are slow blow available in the blade types?


Nuvite-F mentioned a stop. That's what I thought. The dealer who fixed mine said no. I don't know if they talked to Barker (Jack mfg'r), but I'll be calling on Monday. In the mean time I've added a self tapping screw above the "stop" line the dealer added.

Thanks all for the feedback and links.

Bob

Our 1980 Caravelle has a bunch of the old style round glass fuses, and they are getting amazingly hard to come by. I guess that's because cars went to the blade type fuses a good many years ago. I keep a couple of boxes of 20 and 30 A fuses on hand--but we've never needed them.
I carry extra slow blow fuses and did need one in Nova Scotia. This was a prelude to my Barker jack (3 month old Airstream) switch panel going out. I replaced the panel - Barker sent one to my next scheduled stop. Fortunately, hand cranking the jack on my 23 FB was much eadier than I anticipated.

I now keep my jack covered when not in transit. Keeps moisture out.

At this Amazon link I see the 30 amp Littlefuse that's time delay
http://www.amazon.com/LITTELFUSE-029...30A+Time+Delay

Here's the water resistant in-line ATC fuse holder:
http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-...G2R7JFTXKJBXSF
You might find these at NAPA too.

Here is a site where you can put in your requirements and then purchase. There is a 9 week lead time. You might call them and see if that can be shortened. I don't know about shipping but you can order a bag of what you need and put it in the trailer somewhere. I couldn't find 2-35A for my inverter so I just bought a bag of 25 or so. Almost the same price as one plus shipping.

Rick, thanks for the info. I think that's the ticket. I'll talk to the dealer re warranty as I have another year, but will at least get the pieces in hand in the spares bag and ready to go.

I appreciate your advice.

BTW, my GGG grandfather was born in Owentown, and we're doing a little ancestry research. So we may be in your neck of the woods sometime in the next couple of years.

Bob

Ignore the 250 volts part and go get the 32 volt (?) fuse from Advance Auto or wherever.

He's having a problem finding the slow blow 30 amp, the voltage isn't a problem. There are lots of 30 amp, but they all seem to be fast blow, for electronic applications. Slow blow is needed for motors. His current configuration is for a glass, in-line fuse.

I found some at Amazon for him but suggested he could also replace the glass holder with a newer blade fuse holder. The slow blow problem returned, since even with blade fuses most applications are for electronics. I found slow blow 30A blade fuses but also found a site that has an application where you can put in your requirements and find the fuse, then order it from them. The problem there is that there is a 9 week delay. I advised him to call the company and see if that could be shortened.

My personal experience in trying to find blade fuses usually results in having to buy a bag of fuses, which is sometimes cheaper than buying a single fuse. I needed some 3 amp blade fuses for my boat, went to 3 auto stores and 2 Kmart style stores, none of them had what I needed. I went on Amazon and found a bag of 25 3A fuses for about $7. I added them to my bag of 35A fuses for my inverter. I'm really stocked on blade fuses now and I have an extra in-line to blade adapter, just in case.

30A slow blow is standard NAPA item, just not always in stock. Link posted yesterday in Post #14.

Slow Blow 30A Fuse Availability

Friends: May I suggest and recommend patronizing my authorized Airstream dealer and Air Forums advertiser Colonial Airstream in Lakewood New Jersey. Parts Manager Brian Hawtin has a box full of the items and understands the difficulty in finding the proper fuse. Call him at 800.265.9019 and tell him I passed you along to him. Great service department also....

I found 30 amp 32 volt slow blow fuse at Advance Auto Parts- the first place I looked- the closest to the house-

Cool

I looked on their website and couldn't find them. Advance is my goto store, always friendly. I don't know why I'm having a hard time locally. If you can find them on the Advance site maybe you can post the link so the OP can order them.

Thanks

Several years ago I purchased the remaining stock of a local electronic suppliers discontinued 30A 32V slow blow glass fuses. The fuses are labeled 32V 313 30A. I would be glad to sell them for $2 per pack of 5 plus shipping. PM me if interested. I will be bringing any remaining stock to International to sell in the flea market.

At Advance Auto I see part number is BP/SFE-30-RP. It doesn't say slow blow and at another site it says "no time delay". I don't think it's for motors, just for lighting. I found part number BP/AGC-30-RP, also doesn't say time delay or slow blow and at Amazon they say 'fast acting'.

M. Hony, if you got a pack and it says slow blow on them, what is the part number on the front, that will help to locate them.

If it were me, for the low cost, I'd go to Advance Auto and get a 5 pack to see if they hold up for the tongue jack. You've got 5 chances

If that doesn't work then contact Colonial or other AS dealership. I think I'll look at mine next time I'm over at the storage lot. If this is what mine needs I think I'll convert to the ATC blade fuse. These glass tubes are getting really hard to find.
