I put in a tc 20 and required a 20 or 25 amp fuse in the charging line. I got a blade type fuse holder (automotove type of fuse) Anchor weather proof and wired it in. Not sure if they go to 50 amp or not. I'd check out Blue Seas electric website, I used some of their fuse holders 125 amp to go between my battery switch and new panel when I redid my electrical

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The charger circuit should always be fused to protect against a short or reverse polarity. Best to get recommendations from Xantrex on what type fuse to use.

I couldn't recall including a fuse in the charger circuit I recently installed. That's because the charger (IOTA 45DLS) has built in fuses.
