mikentucky welcome aboard.

not sure I am following you. The manual I have has 2 diagrams one for accessories and the other for engine, both show the same fuse block which is under the helm.

Start a new post with the issues you have and we will advise.

OK, I PROMISE I'll put my glasses on first next time...the manual I found online covers a few different models. I was looking at the "Fuse Block Diagram" for a 2800SCR, not my 2400SCR :-) At least it'll be a cake walk to do the one I see! Thanks Mike.

Nav and anchor lights - question; does the switch that operates those light have it's own light? If so, does the switch light come on when you flip the switch to nav or anchor?

If so, open up the housings for the nav lights and clean connections and/or replace the bulbs. Look into the anchor light socket and see if the two male pins are in place. Check the base of the anchor light pole - the female receivers need to be tight around......well, you get the idea.

Was the house lights fuse actually blown? sometimes corrosion builds up on the blades and contacts. unseating and reseating the fuse a couple of times scrapes away the corrosion. You would also hit the fust itself with a fine steel wool, but that doesn't help the contacts in the fuse block. I've seen this resolve a lot of weird 12v issues.

Yes nav and anchor lights do have a light on the switch and it does not turn on when I hit the switch... The fuse for the the cabin lights was not blown. It may have been corroded. Glad I decided to change it for shits and giggles!!

If the switch light isn't illuminating odds are the switch(s) are not getting 12V. Just eyeballing the fuse may not show if it's blown, and even if it isn't the contacts my be corroded. Pull and replace the fuse. Even remove/insert several times to clean the connections.

A volt meter is very useful, and fairly inexpensive.

I had the same issue but with my refrigerator... I decided that I wouldn't tempt fate with my precious beers/burgers and replaced my corroded fuse block with (2) new ones. image.jpg old on top/new on the bottom.

since the nav and anchor get power from the same fuse start there and verify 12V is on both sides of the fuse and go from there.
