Replacement Fuses

I'm trying to track down some spare fuses to keep on hand in case one blows, but can't seem to find the type that my manual calls for.

The manual says specifically to replace with the ATC Type 257 by Littelfuse, but all I can find are ATO fuses. Even the Littelfuse website carries only ATO.

Does anyone know where I can get this type? Does it matter - ATO vs ATC?

Thanks!

From what I have been told is you can replace an ATO fuse with an ATC fuse, but you should not replace an ATC fuse with an ATO fuse. That is for truck (car) applications so not sure about something that is not subjected to outside elements such as in a trailer.

If the Littlelfuse website carries only ATO .... then I think they are fine to use.

ie. you can probably skimp a little on what the 'Manuel' says.....
