brake buddy

I sent my brake buddy (classic) back to mfg and they change the compressor out and returned with a direct connection unit for my battery. I ran direct unit into the car but keep blowing 15amp fuse in direct unit. I checked socket on brake buddy and found a 20 amp fuse. I change fuse in the direct unit and system works ok. My question should I use 15 vs 20 amp fuse?

I have the same system and it has worked great with the factory fuse. Still, I would think the 20 would be fine.
