JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: No thank you

H​I, the step lights should be controlled by the courtesy light switch. You may have a wiring diagram that came with the boat, if you have the paperwork. It may show the connection point for the lights, if there is no power to them. The water inlet should be for connecting to city water supply, so you don't need to run your fresh water pump to use the sinks, etc.
