Is yours standard or expanded. I thought  the same as you the 5amp would be OK. But if expanded  the extra power maybe to much. Think I'll get a 10 to 15 amp one be on the safe side. Thanks for the reply.

Get the biggest amp you can afford up to 30a.
You might upgrade radios and need a bit extra at some point.
A 5amp is ideal for a night light lol.
