Customer Question
2009 Sundancer...batteries reading about...

2009 Sundancer...batteries reading about 13 on voltage on the dash. I used a car battery charger to jump. Charger hook into a 110 outlet at dock. I turned the key to crank and all power died. Is there a breaker or switch maybe tripped. No lights in cabin...no power anywhere. Please advise

Mechanic's Assistant: 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 the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

No power after using car charging system. I’m thinking to much of a surge. Maybe a fuse or breaker tripped

There is a fuse or a breaker with in 1 foot of the main battery. With there not being any power anywhere, this is what has blown. Replace the fuse or reset the breaker and you will get power back.
