After I blew fuse when a fuse blew, I ripped the fusebox out and replaced it with circuit breakers that can be reset by pushing the tit back in. Much better.

All I can say is these automotive fuses must be fairly robust to cope with overloading over so long a period...........

I put LED indicators after the switch when I made up my switch panel. The fuse is before the switch. That way when you switch on, if the LED is not on, the fuse has gone, or worse.
