I just installed the ART roadgrater and installed a big red valve system with a 400 viair compressor. It keeps blowing fuses, I have a 8 guage power wire run to it and its says its rated at 30 amps. 30 amp fuses pop at about 120 PSI and the pressure switch is a 150PSI cut off.

Should I up the amp size or is something else wrong?

Try a 40 amp fuse... that would only seem logical to me. If its rated at 30 amps, then you don't want a 30 amp fuse in there... you need something higher.

IMO, that is a bad thing to do, but to each his own. If you got cash to drop on a replacement compressor, more power to ya.

yeh, I dont think one 450 is enough for that tank either, unless you like waiting 10 minutes for it to fill up.
