Question blown 100amp fuse

thought all 4 of my 6volt batteries bit the dust until i checked the fuse between the batteries and the cut off switch, has anyone had this problem before? this is my 8th dp and i never had this happen,unit was in storage for about 2 months , and batteries were dead when i went to use it , getting a fuse was not easy either,any thought?

Let's see - a bank of dead batteries and a blown fuse. Sounds like the surge of current into the batteries just overpowered the fuse - it does happen. Your alternator probably can source somewhere around 150A and it tried to do just that when it saw those dead batteries. Maybe putting a battery charger on the batteries to give them a bit of a charge before you try starting it again might help.
