Most pumps will draw more than 3 amps. This one here https://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-Electri....c100008.m2219 for instance has 120W in its specs.
120watts at 12volts is a maximum draw of 10amps.

I would not be attempting to draw 10amps down a wire that has a 3 amps fuse. Best to use the battery clips, or to rig up an acceptable solution.

I have a BT pigtail installed on my 2017, I just ordered a short SAE to Female Cig Lighter pigtail from Amazon for $6.99 shipped and will upgrade inline fuse.

New fuses came in. Then I realized the fuses on the bike are some type of weird kind I never seen before. They basically don't have any prongs sticking out.
Did some searching and found out they are called low profile mini fuses. Now I need to order a box.


Just what I needed, now I will have 3 different style of fuses in my electrical box, lol


Low profile mini

This should be the correct fuse if anyone is looking to have a few spares to keep handy..
