It just goes inline on the +ve cable. In the same way a fuse in a standard 3 pin plug does in your home.

Iíve never used one of these on any of my motors but would do so if i could understand how to fit it! Can anyone can give advice on how to actually fit it? Iím a complete idiot when it comes to electronics so any advice / diagram in simple (very simple) idiot proof terms would be really appreciated!

Ive used it a few times over winter without, but as spring and summer comes around Id rather have one due to weed growth etc.

Better safe than ruin a £180 motor

Itís worth the bother , £12 against whatever you pay these days for a 55lb thrust motor . As batteries drain down you can get a surge that will destroy the motor. Itís one of those things with boats that can happen and probably will , not today but one day and usually at the most inconvenient moment.

I bought one of these for my Bison as they recommended it to not kill the motor under too much current draw. I never got round to fitting it and have managed noddying about trying to cut through thick weed beds rather than lift and row without any meltdowns.

Iím not gong to say you donít need one, but Iím not going to bother trying to find or fit it

Can anyone recommend a resettable fuse for a electric outboard. 50 amp ideally.
