Thanks for postingThere are a couple of reasons that can cause the a/c fuse to blow, first of all something is drawing excessive current, this could be due to a failing a/c clutch or a compressor that is starting to seize up for a number of reasons. Most likely it's the compressor clutch that is shorting out, I'm sure that if you disconnect the compressor connector the fuse will stop blowing just like if you don't use the a/c it will not blow. visually inspect the clutch for overheating or metal dust around it.
