First, welcome to the website. Second, if the 30 amp fuze is the one for your charging systems then I believe your stator is shorted out, which is hereditary with those machines. There is a way to install an alternater and bypass the stator if you are interested, check the search.

Blows 30 amp fuse with the key off.....Unplug the regulator/rectifier module first..It's under the shelter top left side..about 4" square,1" or so thick with cooling fins
Battery power connects to it through the fuse....
And by all means,you will have to test the stator windings for resistance and voltage....

I suspect that the regulator is dead shorted.....
Most likley cause...poor/corroded connections at the module and stator plug and any add on equipment to the electrical system....
