Airdog 2 owners!

I have had my airdog 2 for a couple years now with zero problems so far! I just noticed a few weeks ago that my 20 amp fuse in the airdog wiring harness was getting melted. Now the fuse never blew, I never lost fuel pressure, but If the truck ran for any extended period the fuse would get so hot I couldn't hold it any more. I replaced the fuse a couple times and double checked all my connections but still have the same problem. What are your thoughts? Filter is new and clean, all connections are perfect I even connected the power and ground in the harness to the alternator so it would be a corrosion free connection! Anyone else having this problem or heard of it? Thanks for any help guys.

Well it looks like the motor is shot so they sent me a new motor to put in, since a section of my harness got burnt up I am going to make a new harness with 10awg wire instead.

Just for giggles if you have an amp meter, once the new unit is installed, you may want to get a reading off of it to have a baseline, and then down the road you can check it occasionally and make sure it's staying within spec. Helps potentially prevent a breakdown out somewhere in the middle of nowhere, if you know it's starting to draw a bit more than it should. Justa thought
