Inline fuse at battery?
My dad just bought an older 2001 camper, and it has what appears to be a fuse-holder (without a fuse) up near the battery, inline with the hot battery lead. The previous owner kept all paperwork, and Dad is reading up on everything (this is his first camper), but there are no specifics about what fuse type/rating to use there.
I seem to remember that my 2000 Coleman Mesa popup had a self-resetting fuse for that purpose, but my 2004 Surveyor hybrid does not.
1. Do newer campers make due with fuses at the converter/distribution panel? Why is this acceptable now, and not before?
2. What size fuse should Dad use in that fuse holder?
3. Any other things to look for?
