    I want to be safe and have this circuit fused. It moves 5-10 amps at times.

    My question is: do I need to have two fuses in this circuit? One on the panel and one on the battery? I'm thinking yes but I hate to add a second efficiency sucking fuse if I don't have to.

    See the schematic attached.
