Default Receptacle fuse type-size?

I have a '92 Club Car that I've changed to 48V from 36v.
I bought a new 48v charger... http://www.cloudelectric.com/product...fslash-15a.htm

(HWC1b 48V/15A. Description...
1. Output short protection
2. Automatically turn off when battery is full
3. time power off
4. Automatically start up when low battery voltage detected
5. charge process shown by LED)

I have built a bracket to mount the new receptacle that came with it in the stock location.
Should I install a fuse on the pos. side and if so, what size and type?

I've really learned a lot on this site! I mostly search and read and don't post, but I couldn't have got this far without you guys.

If anyone is interested I could post pic's of my build (Alltrax 4865P, MJZ 400A contactor, SW 202 reversing contactor, Plum Quick reworked 36V motor, all new wiring,etc.)

Thanks in advance for any help or advice (good, bad or ugly)!

I have never seen an inline fuse in the charge circuit from the manufacturers, so I don't see any reason for you to install one now.

Ok, my old receptacle had a wire between two studs, maybe a fusable link? Anyhow I broke it as it was all rusted up.
Thanks

I've read what seems like hundreds of your posts, you've helped me a lot already!
I think I'll run a 25 or 30A inline fuse just to be safe. What do you think?
Thanks

30a sounds good to me, I have never seen a charger go higher than 27 or so. Make it a slow-blow just in case.
