Fuses

Sorry, I was looking at the 25A in the fuse panel picture. It shows on p. 6 of the manual too.

Thanks for the info.!

For future reference:

Blade fuses (also called spade or plug-in fuses), with a plastic body and two prongs that fit into sockets, are mostly used in automobiles. Each fuse is printed with the rated current in amperes on the top. These types of fuses come in six different physical dimensions:

micro2, micro3, low-profile mini (APS),
mini (APM / ATM)
regular (APR / ATC / ATO)
maxi (APX) heavy-duty.
Unofficially, the APS fuse is sometimes called "micro" since the term means smaller than mini, but recently fuses using the micro name have been released. Regular blade-type fuses, also known as standard fuses, were developed in 1976 for low voltage use in motor vehicles. The mini fuses were developed in the 1990s. Blade type fuses can be mounted in fuse blocks, in-line fuse holders, or fuse clips. The ATC fuse has a fuse element that is closed or sealed inside the plastic housing and the ATO fuse has a fuse element that is open or exposed on the bottom of the fuse between the blades.

Size groupsEdit

Mini, Regular, and Maxi Blade Type Fuses
Blade SizeBlade GroupDimensions L W H Common Ratings
Micro2APT, ATR9.1 3.8 15.3 mm5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30

MiniAPM, ATM10.9 3.6 16.3 mm2, 3, 4, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30
RegularAPR, ATC (Closed), ATO (open)19.1 5.1 18.5 mm0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40
MaxiAPX29.2 8.5 34.3 mm20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120
Where space permits, a miniature circuit breaker is sometimes used to replace a blade-type fuse in the same fuse holder.

Color codingEdit
Blade fuses use a common coloring scheme for the micro2, micro3, low-profile mini, mini, and regular size fuses, and a partial color similarity with the maxi size fuses. The following table shows the commonly available fuses for each size group.

I looked through dozens and dozens of listings, and this is a great assortment for this vehicle (it includes all seven ratings from 530 A) and the price is great. The listing mistakenly describes them as ATM but they are really ATC (it also states standard blade fuses which is correct). Feedback indicates they are of good quality, all there and in good condition when received. There is no box however, just a bag.

UPDATE: Don't order those. Although they are described as standard fuses and standard blade fuses are shown in the listing, what they actually shipped were ATM mini fuses. Some commenters on Amazon were shipped standard which made sense given what was pictured, but that's not what I got.

Check Harbor Freight

They have two assortments the standard and the mini. I wouldn't worry about carrying the large amperage fuses, say over 50amp because if one of those blows, You have major problems and will need to investigate the problem before installing a new one. That is why you have Coach-Net or one of the other Road Service providers

Look for a loose wire that could be shorting out or a bad ground that could be intermittent and arcing. Or a loose wire in the switch or a socket.

Agreed. This is what I ended up with. It includes the 5 to 30 amp sizes and was quite reasonable.

Fortunately, I haven't needed any so far!
