What size fuse for 200 amp alternator
I am upgrading the charging system on my 2007 JK. I am going with dual batteries and a 200 amp alternator from Mean Green. While I am at, I am doing the big 3 upgrade.
I have been researching the various aspects of this as I slowly gather all the parts. My JK is my only vehicle and I live quietly alone, hence all the planning.
I am going to replace the positive wire that goes from the alternator to the battery. It currently has a fusible link. I am replacing this wire due to the higher output alternator and of course, will need to have an inline fuse.
I was only able to find one source so far on another forum where this fuse is specifically mentioned and the guy used a 300 amp fuse.
Does that sound right? I don't want to use a fuse that is too big and something go wrong, causing everything to melt as well as cause other damage. On the other hand, if the fuse is too small, it will blow constantly.
I was also hoping for somebody to point me in the right direction for a high quality fuse. I am hoping to get this done right the first time and put an end to my electrical woes.
