SPOD, air compressor, and pressure switch

My VIAIR 400C blew it's 30A fuse in the SPOD yesterday. After talking w/ VIAIR it turns out their manuals online are out of date and that the 400C has a max draw of 32A. My dilemma now is that the SPOD is only rated up to 30A so putting a 40A in it is not a good idea.

After some reading, I starting looking at pressure switches and had a new idea.....

What if I wired the compressor to the battery with a 40A in-line fuse, and then wired up a pressure switch to the SPOD? Is this a valid solution?

Disregard. I don't like this idea any more, even if it was doable. I got the SPOD to cut down on the number of wires running around the engine bay....this just defeats the purpose.
