Glad to hear you resolved the issue. Some have had to replace their fuse panel due to corrosion issues with the contacts.

Now that the boat is running find some free time to learn how to use a volt meter as it will help to resolve future problems quicker.

BTY pour one for me

That was happening with mine. You can unseat, then reseat the blade fuses. Do it several times. It will scrape the corrosion off of the fuse and the connections on the bus. I ended up replacing both fuse panels and all the fuses and went from slide on connectors to ring terminals.

@ mmwjr, picked up a quality volt meter an electrician friend gave me and learning for sure!

Strange thing is that one fuse was the only corroded one on the panel. I had a radio issue a few weeks back and checked all the fuses, I think by pulling it I messed up the little connection it did have...

Now to diagnose the leaking drive fluid. Not that bad I guess? I just have to add a few ounces after every trip out.

This will be a new thread, but where is it leaking to? Do you see an oil sheen on the water, or is it ending up in your bilge?

Not in the bilge. I have not seen anything on the water either, maybe it is too small an amount!?

A mod should re-title the thread, "SoCalMX's bonehead noob problem solving thread!"

A few ounces after each trip does not seem small. I would be concerned if a seal in the outdrive water may be entering as well. You may want to loosen the drain plug to see if any water comes out. Better yet drain it and perform a leak down test then refill if ok.

Loosen the drain plug for the outdrive? Will try and locate.
