Default In line fuse rating

Hi Bill,

There will be a data plate inside the fridge which shows the consumption on
12 volts. Some current Dometic fridges draw as much as 17.9 amps at 12
volts. Normally, you would also need to make an allowance for battery
charging.

Regards

I keep blowing the in line fuse for the power to the S socket, at the
moment it has a 15 amp fuse there,does anyone know if this is
sufficient. It only blows if I have the fridge turned on.

Now that sounds like a fair idea why didn't I think of it. Thanks for
that.

Bill,

I always used 25amp fuse on the feed to battery and fridge circuits, now
with the new wiring I use a 25amp fuse for the fridge circuit and 15 for
main power circuits which also includes the battery when towing. As I
normally do my own wiring, I always use thicker than recommended cables for
both.

Thankyou I will give it a try. This would then match the fuse which
controls the circuit from which the power take off comes.
