Fuses

To all-- The one thing that seems to be missing from all the " what should I have in my tt lists" that I've seen is FUSES. A couple of 15A,20A & most importantly a couple 30A as they are outside,in the weather, on the battery . They are available at all auto parts stores & maybe wally world. Just a thought. Larry

I bought a few multi packs (15,20,30A) packs at wally world to keep in the camper just in case. It was suggested I get some spares by the tech that did the walk though on our camper.

Get the exact ones that are in your converter so you won't be tempted to "fuse up".

Good point Larry! I also keep a set of the speciality fuses that go in my TV to power the brakes and the Aux power. I pinched my tow cable on a trip and blew them both - I was so happy to have a spare set with me. They are not standard issue at most stores, so having spares is critical.

When getting your fuses consider ones that have an indicator that glows when the fuse blows, such as these. They aren't very expensive and will save a lot of hassle when you need to find out which one is the blown one.

Yep, keep spare fuses both in my TV and the TT.

If my memory serves me correctly, I also have a spare 2amp fuse, just don't remember where it goes! I think there may be one on the frig or hot water heater circuit located from the outside panel. I better check the next time I pull my TT out.

Yup, trailer, truck, and Rhino. One blown fuse can cause a lot of grief so I keep several of each size in each place.

I agree with Lady Fitzgerald. I also use these and have been for a couple of years. They work Great and make it alot easier to find a blown fuse. Well worth money you pay for them.

I also carry a spare fuse socket in case the one at the batteries gets damaged.
