So the 124's aux water pump is also not fused? Looks like I have another chore! By the way, I ended up putting a 2 Amp fuse in my 123. A 1 Amp fuse failed after awhile. Even though my measurements showed a steady-state current draw of about 0.9 Amp, there probably is a start-up surge of greater than 1 Amp.
