ok well ever since its gotten cold out ive had the problem with the lines freezing.well thrusday i had to bring it in work and warm it up and i also blew a fuse...so i replace the fuse and its all good,next morning i blow the same fuse again...so today i warm up the garage and heat up the valves,compressors,and replace the fuse...turn the key on and the fuse blows again...so i took a test wire and put it in place of the fuse to see what would happen and all my valves work but theres no air in the tank bc theres a leak in one of the compressors so it would lift up but my compressors will not turn on...u guys think the compressors i still froze and thats why im blowing fuses and thats why the comps will not turn on? thanks jAsoN

probably since you've blown so many fuses, I would change the relay out because its more then likely gone out, do you have a toggle switch on the compressor (before the relay)? Becasuse you may have a short in your power wire. About the only way to solve the lines freezing is to get a water trap. What kind of compressor do you have?

And what wire is blowing the fuse?? The one on the compressor?? Are you running two compressors off of one relay and one fuse?? what size fuse?? what size rating on the relay??

i have a power wire w/ a inline fuse running from the battery to the relay,then the other side of the relay im running another power wire to a distro. block,then 2 wires w/ inline fuses running to each compressor.all of the fuse in the inline wires r 60 amps...the fuse i just started blowing is coming from the battery to the relay. the relay is a stringer 80 amp relay.
