Default Resettable fuses

As I recall there was interest in knowing where to get the resettable fuses that are all over BMC's and maybe on Wanderlodges as well.

They are made by Snap Action in Mountainside NJ and here is the website

http://www.snapaction.net/

They say if you will send them $4.00 and the defective fuse they will replace it at no charge. I have asked about buying spares but have not yet received a reply on the cost of those. They only sell direct, they do not have distributors.

Tommy (White Hat Guy) found someplace to get them, but had to buy a dozen. He's got some if you need them!

Default Snap action fuses

I needed one a few weeks ago. You have to get them a dozen at a time. If you need one let me know and I will mail you one when I get back home on the 20th. They are all 20 amps.

Lee,

If you want, we could split an order so I would have some spares.

Email me if interested.

If you guys do a order of 10 or more, I would also like 1 or 2 for spares. Looking at the fuse/cb cheat sheet - it looks like most or all of the resettables are 15 amp. I'm on the road moving around as far as delivery - I use a mail forwarding service that gets mail to me eventually.

If most are 15 amp can we order the 15 amp size?

Or a mix?

The web site implies sizes between 2.5 - 40 amp available.

Default Resettable fuses

I will check with Snap Action and see what the possibilities are in terms of ordering mixes of fuses (15's, 20's, etc.) or whatever. That way we can put together an order to hopefully cover what everyone needs. After I find out the scoop (cost, what we have to order, etc) , I will post what we can do and then everyone who is interested can send me an email at lnjdavis@gmail.com and I will put together a list. We may want to swap some with White Hat guy (at least he is the one as I recall that bought ten 20 amp fuses) if he wants some different ones. I can deliver them at RATS or mail them if needed with the cost.

Anyone who has a better idea or wants to do it, let me know

Default Scoop on buying resettable fuses

OK, here's the scoop on the fuses

We have to order 12 at a time. I believe we can mix the order if we don't want over 12 or if more we can probably order any mixture we want.

The fuses are $4.00 each and they do not take credit cards so it must be prepaid or COD. We have to pay shipping. They have manual reset or automatic reset, same price. Mine are manual reset, and that may be best as you then have to figure out waht went wrong and look at fixing it if needed. But, automatic reset are available if you want.

I told the lady I would talk to others to see what we need and then call her to find out the shipping charge for the order (she said it would not be much, they don't weigh much) and then send her the money for the order. We'd then have to figure out the best way to distribute them to all of us.

Since my BMC seems to only have 15 amps, that's what I will order. If someone needs 20 amp we can order then, or buy some from White Hat Guy, or trade him some 15 amps if he needs those. If we need more 20 amps we can get some, or if we need other sizes we can get those as well. At least that's the way I understand it.

So if interested people will email me at lnjdavs@gmail.com with how many and what size and kind you need, we will see if we have enough for an order. Depending on how it goes and how many are interested and how much distributing we have to do, we can go from there or not.

Best,

Default Fuse Order

I have been a little lazy but no one else has contacted my in awhile so I will get this order out. Before doing so I will send an email with a copy to everyone who wanted some outlining the order to make sure y'all are happy with it.

We'll then figure out how best to get them to you. My guess with shipping they will cost around $4.25-4.50 each plus mailing to each of you.

I'll try to do it this week, so if anyone else wants any send me an email right away.

Currently I have requests from Ron, Dan, Brad, and John Mace
