x's 2 and change it out to a 40 amp auto reset. I used have to almost stand on my head to push that button in. I called my dealer and he told me mine was a 40 amp, yours might be different I would call and ask what size to small is no good and to big is no good.

Contact Lippert's customer service. They may even mail you the 30 amp current limiter you need for free. Here is the service bulletin.

While the service bulletin dictates a "manual reset" type 30 amp current limiter, I have been using an automatic reset one for years with no problems.

(I would also do the slide out fuses at the same time. You will need to sooner or later)

Don, OC and everyone else; it was great to find this thread! I just found this forum while I was trying to find the location of my bypass valve (another issue). Anyway, Don, can you tell me what your secured the circuit breakers to in the photo?

I've never owned a trailer and this summer we purchased a Wildcat; damn, there is a lot to learn! Thanks in advance. John

I (and others) used a 1/4 inch piece of plywood as a wall separating the battery compartment from the baggage area.

My front storage area (I call the dirty side because the battery is in that area) is seperated from the clean storage area by a wall of plywood. I installed the three fuse release's by 1/4" self tapping screws. The fuse release's have molded wings with holes for mounting. Just add an eyelet to each end of the wires that you cut out the in-line fuse's from.The breakers you are refering to are what I call fuse release. When you reach say 31amp draw they will release power for 3sec. and reset for normal operation. Its an easy peesy mod...
