Normally, these fuses will not "blow" unless there is a
serious problem inside the unit. Internal fuses are
replaceable; however, only trained personnel should
attempt fuse replacement. If the unit is damaged during
fuse replacement, the warranty may be voided.
The fuse in the DC accessory outlet plug is user-
replaceable. Make sure to first disconnect the outlet plug
