    Hi all,

    I just bought a battery link acr http://bluesea.com/category/2/productline/docs/386 and I think I understand how to hook it up but am having trouble finding the two time-delay Bussman 75A or larger fuses that I need to wire in during installation. I've been to the local Fleet farm and even to our local West Marine shop and I can't seem to find the correct fuses. If anyone knows of a website I can find them at or of another type of fuse that I can substitute in it's I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    Thanks Knotty, I looked at the max-fuses at West marine but wasn't sure what I need to get to hold the fuses? I have a glass fuse panel and was hoping to find something simple like the kind of fuses that you can buy at fleet farm that come with a rubber cover and that can just be inserted between a spliced wire.

    I find those inline fuses a PAIN IN THE A$$ to change out or even find after awhile. The maxi fuses are easy to work with, easy to check with tired old eyes and there's no fumbling around trying to read tiny numbers to ensure you get the right size. I'm surprised BlueSea specified a different fuse then one of their own line.

    Those inline maxi-fuse holders look like they should work. Good price too!
