I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So the current set up sounds fine for the vehicle. May I ask why you need an additional 50A? Is it just for the fridge? Your vehicle is capable of producing it but it will burn your alt up on continued use if you are drawing close to the 50a limit of the fuse. For start up reasons of every motor, AC, fan, fridge, they all spike in amps so you would blow a 50 amp fuse if you were pulling close to that on start up of what ever you had on that circuit.
Does that make sense?Let me know if you have questions.Thanks
