2.5A + 2A @ 5v = 22.5 Watts. Assuming its a good quality outlet and 85% efficiency, then it draws 26.5Watts / 13. 8V = 2Amps.
The existing fuse should be fine for that usb outlet. Either the outlet is shorted or it's very inefficient. As mentioned above, using a higher rated fuse could mask a bigger problem. Test the wiring and outlet before the changing fuses. Many multimeters have a dc amp measurement feature. Along with the wire gauge and length, the number and types of connections must also be considered when selecting fuses as each component drops voltage and increases current.
Inreach will draw between 0.5A and 2.0A @ 5V, so that should not be an issue.
