I think I remember my Dad doing that a time or two. Many a house has burned down because of doing that. That is why Teds post shocked me so much.

Possible Source Of Blown Fuse Problem

Water and the Barker Power Jack are problematic.

I'm on the third toggle switch and have, at last, solved the problem (I think;-) ).

If you'll look under the bulls eye level on top of the jack, you'll see it floats. And the space under the level is NOT waterproof.

One of the bayonet connectors on the last toggle switch corroded and simply fell out of its socket. AND this switch was less than a year old.

Solution? Get a cover for your jack and keep the water out.

This is the spiffy little cover that Barker sent with my jack when they returned it to me,

Barker High-Power Jack Blows Fuse While Driving

Thanks, everyone for the info on the fuse and where to start looking for shorts. I'll check the wiring out this weekend and let you know what I find. It is great to know there are a great group of people to turn to for help when it is needed.

Tom

Hi, I have replaced several car dash wire looms because of fuse over-ride. [foil, wire, copper tubing, ETC.]

Thank you, just ordered. Honesty, I forgot I needed to get fuses, if it weren't for this thread I'd probably go on with the foil until something happened....

Quick update, today I checked the wiring from the battery to the fuse holder, then to the motor and found no abrasion on the wire. So I looked very close at the fuse holder. The connections on either end of the fuse holder to the wire were tight but the collar that holds the fuse seemed a little loose so I crimp the collar a little tighter I see if that prevents any fuses being blown. Will need pickup some Slo-blow fuses.
