How much amperage does a horn draw? First my Ultima and now my 5215 both blew 5 amp fuses should i use a 10 amp fuse?

I don't know how much current the horn draws. I have both of mine hooked into the primary circuit that has a 20 amp fuse, and they work fine. As long as you don't use a fuse that is higher than (a) the output of your charging system, or (b) the carrying capacity of the wires, I don't see how a larger fuse could hurt anything -- except possibly the horn itself. The remainder of the circuit should be well protected.

I have mine wired independent of the main circuit, so that i may use it if i had to, when the tractor wasn't running. I'll try a 10 amp and see how that works. Thanks Kent and let me know if you still want to do what we spoke about;)
