I tried Walmart. Their smallest was 7.5 amps. I'll try an auto parts shop. They should have it.

What is a good replacement brand/type for my typical usage...
Don't think replacing the batteries will fix your problem with leaving things on by accident.

The Arctic Pack fuse for our 3100 is in the power distribution panel with the 120 volt breakers, even though the printed circuit board at the step has a slot marked for the Arctic Pack.

Replaced the fuse. Batteries charged but only held charge a few hours. Broke down and bought new batteries. Bought Optima 27 AGM Blue top. Did some research and found these were highly rated for RV use. Also good for cold weather. I think my battery problems started last December when I was in NH and it was below zero for most of my stay. The Optimas were expensive but Pep Boys had a 25% off special if ordered online. I just picked them up today and installed them. I'm hoping my electrical problems are resolved now. Time will tell.
