Where's That Hidden Fuse?

Where's That Hidden Fuse?
This black rectangle box is a modern blade type fuse in a waterproof rubber holder.
Additional Images
Your circuit breaker is on and it yet the bilge pump still won't run...or the water pump....or the radar...or the toilet system...or the shower drain. You get the picture...or maybe not if the lights are the electrical item that won't work.

Look on the electrical item for a built in fuse holder. Or, check the power cables for an in-line fuse. If you suspect the fuse to be blown use a digital multi meter continuity tester to confirm that the fuse is blown. Replace the fuse and test the item to see if it works.

Remember to find out why the fuse blew in the first place.

Still a little fuzzy on your fuses? Give Captain Chris a call and we'll take you through your boat to understand more about how things work. 772-205-1859 or send a note and we'll schedule time aboard.

This is a traditional glass fuse in a yellow rubber waterproof holder.
The bottom left of this photo shows another blade fuse holder (black rectangle shape) with a green spare fuse at the ready. Look at the large gauge cables and the heavy amperage fuses and the 50 amp circuit breaker top right of the photo.
