Switched accessory plug -- anyone go to 15A?

So, now that it's superfuckingcold in the Northeast I'm running my heated jacket liner and gloves. UNFORTUNATELY, that puts me just very SLIGHTLY over the 10A budget (prolly 10.5A).

Here's my question: Has anyone tried putting a 15A fuse into the accessory circuit on a 2007 950 SMR (or SE)?

On the 950 adv, they had 5amp fuses, upgraded to 10amp on the 990. I wouldn't want to take the risk of frying the wires before the fuse goes. In the shop manual there are numbers in the wiring diagrams, (i.e. yellow-red 0.5) unfortunately it doesn't say what 0.5 is. My guess: 0.5 mm˛. If so, it's rated for 11amps. I would run a 1mm˛ cable straight from the battery, with it's own fuse (and switch), powerconnector where you want it, can also be used for batterytender, ...

my 2 cents ...
Honestly, have you ever heard of somebody looking back on his life thinking: "Oh, I should have travelled less and mowed the lawn more often"? (Pumpy)
