MC4 fuse holder

Installing 2 Renogy 100w panels on the van. Roof entry will be with a Go Power cable entry plate.
Is anyone using the Renogy MC4 fuse holder with this entry plate. Do they just snap together or do you use a small jumper wire?

My expectation is they would just go in between your existing MC4 connection, it would make for a clean installation.

My mc4 cables are 10ga so I bought 10ga fuse holders then I soldered them/shrink tubed them never had an issue.

Bbasso did you install this before/after the controller or both before and after?

Huh... I forgot!
Most likely before the SCC and from the SCC to the house batteries.

Since I've seen 15 amps coming from my 2 100wt panels I used a 20 amp fuse...
