having a problem with the electrical system and need some help/advice
running a volvo engine outdrive 5.8fi
fully charged battery... the rear drive unit has power from the gear shift to lift the prop out of the water but i have no power to the main switch board at the capt chair.
nothing comes on no bilge no lights no radio nothing, i checked the emergency cut off switch and its intact and has the clip on it, and the forward/reverse is in neutral.
Is there a main fuse? or something that would interrupt the flow of current to the main switches?
one other thing, we were gone for 12 days to europe and when we came back there was a good about of water in the bilge I had to use the old bilge pump directly to the battery to empty the bilge
first time ive had any problem like this.
thanks for any assistance
