What fuses should I keep on hand?

I recently bought a 2021 View 24V. In case of a problem, I wanted to have an assortment of fuses on board; however, I have no idea what types of fuses are needed. Mini? Std? Low profile? Confused....

Hi Larry,
I would recommend that you pull samples of them, and use this guide to determine "how the Engineer's changed things yet again this year" (ha-ha.) I suspect you will be looking in three locations:
  1. The Power Distribution Box under the hood
  2. The under-dash fuse panel
  3. The Winnebago fuse panel
Of course, I own the Ford Class C, and I never learned German very well; so who knows; maybe Mercedes has a fourth fuse panel somewhere.
Welcome to the Forum.

Thank you very much for the reply, and the reference. Wow, very interesting - I go back to the glass fuse era, and haven't had to change a fuse in decades. I will pull a few to determine the types. Thanks again.

I go about this in a slightly different way since there are so many different types and sizes involved.
I do a bit of study of the main issues that a blown fuse might cause and then look for what I would do for that situation. Many times, it will be a fuse that is not important enough to change until I would get home or to a spot where handy.

Things like the fuse for the dash 12v outlets that power my GPS or TPMS, the dome lights, etc. that I can live without fall into this group.
But then there are some really, really important ones like the headlights, turn signals, etc. so I consider what to do if they blow and how often does that happen.

Most of the time, my fuse failures are do to me working on something, so I've learned not to work on things if I'm not in a situation toc over my mistakes! Never take plumbing apart late on a Friday night when the stores are closed! It makes the gremlins come out!

But then there are failures that are in critical systems and I often find those can be covered by moving fuses from less critical for the short term.

I carry a few fuses as I do not have a history of blown fuses while on the road and expect to swap out from a non-critical system if I have to. Some systems actually have a few spares in the lid already!

Most of the fuses I now carry are due to having to buy five in a pack when I have screwed up and blown one!

Start off with mini fuse kit and also pickup a 40A mini fuse for the solar collectors.
