Swapping an older P3200 for a new one with no fuses

I am no longer able to get fuses for my old Gemini P3200 panel. I have searched high and low for them.I have the quick loader software and uploaded the old panel settings to my computer.

Is the panel swap as simple as just connecting each wire from old panel to the new one and then downloading the settings to the new panel?

Are there certain steps (by that I mean things that need to be done in a certain order) I need to do prior to disconnecting the old one? like disconnecting power first?

Thanks in advance.

What is the physical size of the fuse?
Have you tried searching by the size of the fuse IE 5mm x 15mm glass fuse or  
3.6 x 10mm glass fuse or whatever the size of the fuse is, I'd be very  
surprised if you can't locate replacement fuses.

Also if the fuses are blowing on regular basis then you should resolve that  
issue before replacing the panel

The fuses I am looking for are 1.5AMP 125 Volt 15MM. There is no issue with the system, I blew my last fuse when I changed a smoke detector.

If they are 5mm diameter (which they probably are)  by 15mm long then just  
google 5mm x 15mm fuse.

1st link is fast blow which is probably what you want, second is slow blow  
which you probably don't want

Thanks Doug,

My fuse is 125 volts, these are 250. Is it ok to use them if they are larger volts?

The voltage rating is the maximum voltage. You can use a fuse with a higher
voltage rating than the voltage of the circuit it is protecting as long as
the current rating (A) is the same. The circuits the fuses are protecting on
your panel are only 12 volts so 125 or 250 volt rated fuses are OK
