Rear Backup Lights & Fuse for Thermostat

All - Had a burned out backup light. It's a GE - H9406, which I had a little trouble finding, but today I located it. I would not have bothered but one of the sheet metal screws was working itself out of the fiberglass and the retainer ring was getting ready to fall off. So after I found the new bulb, I went to Home Depot, and bought some #10X1" sheet metal wall plugs, enlarged the hole a tad, and pushed that into it. Then I replaced the bulb, put the retainer ring on, and now the screw won't work itself out any more.

My next feat was trying to locate the fuse in the thermostat. I have "RV Comfort.ZC model. The fuse has the code: Lf. 2A/250V on one end, and 313 and some symbols of approval on the other. Both RV places said Radio Shack or Eoff Electric. HD has a fuse, but not coded Lf, so I did not purchase it. If anyone has had to purchase spares, or replaced one like this I would appreciate knowing where you got it. I want 3-5 spares in case it blows or something goes wrong with the system. I have spares of all the rest of the blade types. I found out the hard way, there are blade fuses which are "mini" type, but those go in the jeep.

The LF stands for "LittleFuse" which is the name of the manufacturer and the 313 is their SloBlo series so what you have is a 2 amp, 250 volt slow blow fuse.

Here is a complete datasheet if you are interested.

The fuses should be available at various stores but may be different manufacturers but be sure to get a slow blow version the same as you are replacing.

If you'd like to order online, you can find them at a variety of online electronic parts sources such as the two below.

Digikey order page.

Found the fuses at Radio Shack. They are the same thing, but a different manfacturer. I got four in a package. That should work for the life of the coach. Thank you all for the assistance.
