Default Fuse Ratings

I just rewired my electronics box and in my hast just pulled all the fuses out when I started. Now I cant remember what each is rated for and cant find any manuals.
The box has a 50 watt halogen spreader light, an Icom M45 VHF, an AM-FM CD player and a Lowrance GPS.
I know the Lowrance takes a 3 amp the other 3 I had 10 and 20 amp fuses in the box. This is the first of my spring projects.

Try contacting the manufactures about thier products. They will tell you what fuse to put in. If you put a fuse that is to heavy and something happens. You could fry the unit to the point of no return.

Default RE: Fuse Ratings

the spreader most likely took the 20 amp fuse
the stereo and the vhf most likely used the 10 amp fuses.
