After hours of searching I finally found the OEM maker of the fuses, but so far I can't find any distributors. Ironically I work for the government in QA on fuses among other things. I left some messages with my contacts at Cooper Bussmann and Littelfuse to see if they have anything comparable and readily available. I also left a message with the OEM Pacific Engineering Corporation to see if they have local distributors or if they only provide to corporations...like Dodge.

I guess I'm hoping to find some in bulk so I don't have to run to the dealer and get one for $4 everytime, especially when they have to order it too.
Good to know.

If you don't mind, could you let me know how you make out with this issues?
Thanks

Today I heard back from PEC and they do not sell to the general public. Cooper Bussmann's closest match is the FMX-LP series fuses, but they are larger and will not fit in our fuse blocks. So at the moment the only way to get a replacement fuse is directly from Dodge. My dealer had no idea the 13's had this new fuse in them so they didn't stock them. He had to order them from the national warehouse which will take a few days. I plan on buying a couple to keep in the truck just in case.

Just an update. The replacement fuse provided by Dodge isn't the original in the truck. They're now an M case fuse by Littelfuse. 695020 for the 20amp.

These seem to be in very limited supply at the dealerships around here.
I was able to obtain both a 20A and a 30A fuse, both are different from the origionals. The combined inventory of the three dealerships in my area, was a total of six of each of those two fuses.

After this fuse came in we discovered it wasn't the right one. The correct Mopar P/N is 68202896AA. I blew two more fuses and now the fuse is backordered along with 1500 other backorders according to my dealer. They also said 12 vehicles nationwide were sitting in service waiting on this fuse. Wow, great idea Chrysler!
