New Maxxfan install keeps blowing 15 fuse

Hi I am trying to install a Maxxfan 4000k plus to replace original vent in bathroom (1994 winnebago). Everytime I try to connect it it blows the 15 fuse. When I disconnect and put new fuse without connecting fan the lights on its side work. Should I go up to 20 fuse ? I've replaced my lights with LEDs if that makes difference. I have original power converter too.

 

I'm not electrician..just trying to DIY.

Thanks in advance.

The Maxxfan draws about 10 amps when starting.

BUT it draws NO power when off, so there should be no fuse blowing. Are you sure its OFF?

Possibility of a mounting screw shorting out a wire?

Thanks for your reply. I swapped out again with original vent and found that the fan was defective. Returning and replacing with a Fantastic Fan 1250 instead.
