2018 DL1000 XT - dash socket fuse blown

Does anyone know were I will find the fuss for the dash power socket. I was unaware that my air compressor would overload it. Can I up size the fuss (15amp?) with no reproductions. Thx

Accessory power

You should find the fuse in the fuse box under seat, 3 amp I believe, adequate for a phone or gps. The wiring will not support 15/amps with out voltage loss, wire heating - possible melting. See the warning in your manual about the 36 Watt limit. Riders wanting to use heavy loads run dedicated heavier wires to a socket for heated vests, compressors etc. 12 volt wire load charts are available online for sizing wire to meet your needs.
