    wow, kinda need to know what the fuse is for in order to offer help? smoke is definitly "NOT" a good sign, probably made things much worse than when you started.as a peice of advice NEVER replace a fuse with a bigger one. reducing ypur rig to a burned out hulk on the side of the road is not very good for the wallet. I always keep a roll of 14 and a roll of 10 gauge wire in the box and a long set of jumpers plus extra fuses and necessary relays. Maybe run a at most $100 in parts to be sure my rig keeps going even at 3AM and a foot of snow. Just like the energizer bunny. I migght have to get out and manualy jump a connection to angle or raise but better than being dead in the water. once rigged a horn button to fool the raise function and fog lght switch to lower. Boss at the time thought i was nuts but it eaned me a raise so all was good.
