    I like mine, but it does blow a fuse every so often. Happened 3 times now, but I do use it quite a bit. I keep spares with me in the truck just in case.

    I like mine, have yet to blow the fuse (knock on wood), but I have spares just in case that happens. :thumbsup:

    Yeah it's no fun when it happens the first time you aren't expecting it and you have to drive out from the trail with two of your four tires aired up to 35 psi, and the other two at 15 psi lol.

    This is probably a dumb question but are you blowing a fuse on the truck or the compressor?

    you don't have the direct battery connection model.....?

    88P shows battery connections ?

    I'd think direct connection less likely to blow fuses....No ?

    That's the one I had. There's a fuse in the cord that runs to the battery. Can't see it in the photo there but it's in a little fuse box on the cord.

    @Armed in Utah circled in red, there's a little 10A fuse in there. Or maybe it's 20A I can't remember.

    The compressor won't run if that fuse blows
