I will ditto that! However, being a little more thick-headed I thought the chance of a fuse burning out like that again would be slim. So in my most rebelious attitude of youth, I continued the practice of looking at fuses instead of testing them with a meter. Then one day, (I think I was working on my riding lawn mower) the same situation happened. After a couple hours trying to get the garden tractor to start, I got the meter and tested the 30 amp fuse. I was humbled and now grab the meter whenever I suspect a fuse!

What can I say, I am a slow learner of the obvious!

If it makes you feel better, you're not the only one who has misdiagnosed a blown vehicle fuse.  I was fooled by a newer mini ATM type fuse which didn't look blown, but really was.  Like you, I now test them with my meter.
