1000A fuses

Just remember, if one starts glowing orange that’s the sign that you’ve gotta grab it & flip it over.

Those threaded types carry even more current than pennies. Good choice!

Honestly... probably a good bit more than 1000A.

The vehicle is burned down yet the fuse is still not blown.

A Corroded Ground, & some of those "They'll last till they melt, or something burns" lunatic fuses. :biggrin:

I've seen Home, & Business Owners do this, but with Copper Piping cut down to the right length, in their Service Disconnects for Equipment, & even in very old Main Service Boxes, where they got tired of replacing the Cartridge Fuses.

The majority of time that led to Compressors burning out, & in a couple of cases, even a fire.

And Ya'll shoulda heard the Home/Business Owner b**** about the cost of repairing the damage, or replacing everything that melted down. :rotflmao
