12 volt power for new fridge

I am replacing the original fridge in my 74 trade wind. The instructions indicate 12 volt connection for starter etc. old fidge did not use 12 volt. Am intending to use existing wiring that powered 12 volt receptical outlet in cabinet above old fridge which I do not use. If this is ok, do I need to put an in line fuse or is there a fuse in the convertor that will do the job. Thank you all for any advice

Put a fuse in line, just to be safe. Check the fridge manual and it should state the recommended amperage for the fuse. A simple inline fuse holder, either the straight type for glass Bus type fuses or one of the newer automotive blade type holders will work. I don't remember the size I used when I replaced the fridge in my 68 but the current draw is low and it is not a big fuse.

yes, fuse it with about a 3 to 5 amp fuse, max.
