Personally, I prefer not too.
Coz I've seen stuff get damaged (not in my 190e) as a result.
By doing so, you are allowing a higher current (than rated for the device) to pass thru'.
The device will possibly burn out due to the heat.
It is always good to find the source of the higher current draw, especially when there are more than one device in the circuit (like in a Merc).
Just my views...
