Need for spare fuses?

Recently purchased new Melbourne 24L. Is it recommended to carry an assortment of spare 12V & 120V fuses? If so, is there a multi fuse assortment package available?

I carry spare 12V fuses. It is rare to need one but when you need one... it's nice to have the spare. Generally speaking when I have needed one it's because I was either working on something and grounded a wire by accident blowing a fuse, or I was troubleshooting something. I have never blown one that wasnt the result of something I had just done.

I dont' carry spare 120v breakers, as they can just be reset.

I ordered from Del City, since there are so many different sizes I went through the panel and made a list. I think they were about 24 cents each, it was cheaper to buy this way instead of a five pack of each from the auto parts store.

Same here, I went thru the DC fuse panel and purchased a couple of each size. Also carry a pack of spares for the landing gear.

I replaced all 4 of the reverse battery fuses with indicator fuses to prevent lost time with an outage in the converter.

Same for the truck.

It's also a good idea to remember where they are.
