This may be a dumb question, but what is the best way to determine the correct circuit breaker size for a specific load. For instance, I just installed two courtesy lights (4.2 watt, .35 amp draw a peice) and a LED cabin light (200 mA) and I would like to hook all of these lights to the same switch. The current breaker is a 10amp.

Less than one amp draw on a 10 amp breaker is fine.The breaker is sized to protect the wire from damage,not the device.
