What you want is the BUSSMAN (a brand name) BBS-5. It is a 5-amp fast-acting fuse that is 1-3/8" long and 13/32" diameter.

Newark sells them for $7.92 each.

Ziller electric (the owner and sponsor of this forum) sells them for $5.00 each, using part identification Guardian_Fuse_073590A.

I would recommend getting four for stock. It's very unlikely that you will blow any, but if you run into problems it will be "fun" to troubleshoot and you will probably lose a few fuses in the process.

Good call on getting them right from a dealer. I've been hard pressed to find these fuses cheaper anywhere. They're not cheap, but its always a good idea to have a few on-hand or in the bottom of your transfer switch just encase.
