Fuses

I was looking to pick up a variety of fuses to have on hand since the MBS has such a huge number of fuses between the chassis and the MH. Per my prior inspection, the MH has fuses that are 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80, 150 and 300 amps. (Not counting any AC circuit breakers.) So a variety is sure needed on hand!

However, I didn't realize there are not only blade fuses available but also "mini" blade fuses and "maxi" blade fuses, i.e.:

Amazon.com: Tekz 45230 Master Auto Fuse Assortment - 88 Piece: Automotive

And our unit is off at the dealer for a few items of work so I can't go back and look now. Does anyone know if the MBS has mini and maxi fuses or only "normal" blade fuses?? Thanks!

PS:

It's a helpful picture but doesn't differentiate between normal sized, mini and maxi. Thanks for posting.

There are two basic styles. Pull a fuse when you get it back and look at the profile. I can't remember myself exactly which ones, but looking at one will point you to the correct type. Then you can place your order with confidence.

That is called a ATC FUSE. It is just the size, under that is a mini, and about it a maxi. I would just buy the assorted atc fuse kit

That's what I'm trying to figure out. There are a wide variety of assortments available to purchase. Apparently the ATCs are the "regular."

No "Maxi's" in that kit. I have attached the MB Sprinter Fuse Allocation tables that will give you an idea of the amperage's needed.
