Lost Power to all accessories, blower, and bilge pumps

Hello Everyone,

I have a 2005 Mastercraft X2 with a 350. I've lost power to all lights, blower, and ballast pumps. Any hints on a fuse location or where I've lost power?

Appreciate the help,

Not sure about your boat but on my older boats there was a circuit breaker located on the engine. It's mounted on a bracket and has a red button. See if yours has one that has been tripped. Next would be to check the panel under the dash. There should be a set of breakers there. Past that you're going to need to start at the battery and start tracing the power to the dash.

Not sure bout your boat, but on my '02 x9 there is a circuit beaker mounted next to the batteries under the observer seat, if it was to trip I would lose power to all accessories.

I have the same boat
First, check your battery connections and make sure you're getting enough power (might be an alternator problem.... unlikely though). Once you've ruled that out the fuses for the ballast pumps should be the little rubber bubble that sticks out below them. Push those guys in and it should reset. the other fuses will be located under the dash. Let me know if that solves your problem

Sounds more like a ground wire to the dash to me. I wouldn't think it would blow all the fuses/breakers all at once on different things.
Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

Ck the main ground coming from the dash to the battery. Also, should be a large fuse on the main + wire going from the battery to the dash....if it's similar to my 06.
