Bilge pump fuse question.
Just installing my bilge pump and cool switch plate made from laser cut stainless mounted in the glove box..... only problem is what sort of fuse do I need, the guys i bought switch from havent got a clue and said go to an electrical firm?!
I know i need a 5 amp for the 800gph rule pump just wot sort??
here is the switch I bought, as you can see the fuse fits in the switch itself

Fuse size will be determined by what pump you have. Either a 2.5 or 5 amp. What model pump do you have? If it is a 12v it will be 5 amp.

Thats cool, I know I need a 5amp fuse with my 800gph rule but what type of fuse, automotive, household, special marine spec which will probably cost a million times the amount of the auto type but is the same thing lol
i used a glass type which blew straight away and then it got stuck trying to remove it lol

I would goto a auto parts store if u have such and match up something that fits. Make sure its a 12v 5amp. I would use the normal glass type. Maybe u had too small of a voltage or amp rating.
