The new Husky jack we replaced it with (due to an unfortunate forgetting to raise the old jack before backing off Anderson levelers) has limit switches so if you retract the foot to the limit it just clicks off -- no blown fuses.
My new Husky also came with a manual reset circuit breaker instead of a fuse. So if for some reason the limit switch doesn't work, or the jack pulls too much power (unlikely), it's just resetting a breaker instead of replacing a fuse.
Even if your new jack comes with a fuse, I would strongly consider replacing it with a breaker.
