Thanks, Mike. If I could find some copper fuses, that would help. Maybe some dielectric gel to keep them from corroding? With a new circuit for the heater and an inline fuse, maybe I'll plod along with the little "torpedo" fuses until somebody comes out with circuit breakers. It's my daughter's car, and I'd like it as maintenance free as possible since I'm her roadside assistance program. lol.
I suspect a 40-amp heater will get that little car from freezing to toasty in about a minute and a half. It probably won't be on the high setting very often.
