What is a good rv fuse kit?

Hello. We are newbies! What is a good rv fuse kit to have on hand? I looked on Amazon but got confused quickly. We have a 2020 Jayco 224bh.
Thanks for your help!

My Redhawk has a mixture of both large and small blade fuses for the chassis and house. I bought two kits from Amazon, one for each size as they are pretty cheap.

My TT uses mainly 15 and 20A ATC sized fuses. with a few larger ones for polarity protection. Open your fuse panel and see what the range is and go from there. In the 6 years we owned our 26BH, the only time it blew a fuse(s) was when I hooked the battery up backwards. I'll add a large assortment pack from Amazon is cheaper than the small assortment packs from the parts store.

The “Big Amazon Assortment” is a good route. Make sure it’s the size you’ll need and has the various amperage you’ll need. Keep the ones you won’t need because someone in the CG may need an oddball fuse and you can come to the rescue.

For any TT, you only need two sizes. 15 & 30 amp.

That is a slight lie, the water heater and frig control boards do have an onboard fuses. They are tiny fuses, and it is something like 1 or 2 amp. Never heard of one blowing.

You're correct and I believe they are 2 amp, had to replace one a number of years ago (carry spares now).

Also, my present Jay Flight TT WFCO fuse panel uses a 20 amp fuse (Refrigerator/Furnace combined), and also has (2) 40 amp fuses.

I carry a couple extra 15, 20, 30, 40 amp fuses 'just-in-case'.

I use these because they light up when blown, this is especially nice when boondocking and the camper is pitch black and you’re trying to find which fuse is blown. They are expensive they make different sizes but they are worth every penny.

Both of my Coleman digital thermostats (one is heat/cool, the other cool only) have a fuse. Both are “old school” glass tube but are different sizes. IIRC they’re both 2A but the heat/cool is very short and a replacement was hard to find. Both blew when I connected the battery backwards. Along with them the reverse polarity fuses and an in line fuse behind the radio fried.
