Rule bilge pump switch

Anybody got one of these and can tell me the fuse size? I know I need a 2.5A just after the length. Left mine down the shed and need to sort a fuse out before I go back down.
Cheers

Not really. Just after the fuse length for my type of switch.

Rule Switch

Hi
From 'bitter' experience, I would bypass the fuse and either use a water-resistant in-line holder or via your main fuse box - somewhere accesible and 'dry' inside the console.
I found that after only a short time, the fuse corroded into the holder and couldnt be removed. You will probably know it relies on a spring to 'eject' the holder/fuse assy and after time/salt cocktail this locks in its compressed position and combined with the fuse cap sticking to spring and holder make it a screwdriver and butcher job to remove ( and then difficult to make a good contact if you can remove and replace the fuse
Frozen pumps (the consequence of all winter ribbing) caused the fuse to blow and another time just a load issue.
Just my thoughts and ho >
For in line, this sort of thingy and resin filled crimp connectors make for a good joint.

The switch is inside the bench seat so no worries there.
