Default Fuses?

I am replacing my washdown pump. The old pump is rated for 10 amps and the new one is rated for 20 amps. I can't find in the manual where the fuses are to change out the fuse. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
Scott

It's not that simple, the wire needs to be sized for the 20 amp as well else it can get hot and potentially catch fire.

A fuse is there to protect the wiring.

You'll need to determine what gauge the wire is then you can look up its current rating.

What year and model boat do you have? Tough to answer without adequate details.
