    had this fitted by a reputable motorhome repair etc. Company
    Manual says consumes 30watts so 2.5amp at 12 volts?
    Looked in fuse box and expected to see a 5 amp but they have fitted a 15 amp.
    Am I missing something?

    Not really. Start up surge will double the current until the motor is up to speed and when on EHU the voltage will exceed 12v so the current will be higher again but still unlikely to exceed 6 or 7 amps. A 10A fuse will be more than sufficient.
