The voltage rating on a fuse indicates the maximum voltage (i believe its stated for AC not DC) for which it should be used. A fuse can be used at any voltage upto its maximum, above this the fuse may not interupt the flow of current.

You won't find many 12v rated glass fuses like that.

This insures that each electrical item is protected by the correct fuse rating. I have also installed a heavy in-line master fuse next to the main battery switch. After taking advice from this forum, all my electrical installations have used Blue Sea components.

Persistence will win out!

Not yet but I'd be proud to supply them.

I have always appreciated Kwality and I don't think a Rib is a good place to put iffy electrics on, unfortunately it happens ( from new also I am afraid).


If you are ever in Southampton have a look at the wiring components on Billy and you can see the quality......
