2013 X10 electrical issues.

Hi I am hitting some issues on my new X10.

This happened over the weekend and today and my dealer will not be open till tomorrow.

We headed out on Friday and when I got to the lake the stereo would not work. I found that the breaker under the dash had popped and I cannot get it to reset. I figured it was not that big a deal and we would get it fixed when I get the first maintenance done after the 4th.

I went out tonight to see if I could reset the breaker and found the paddle wheel breaker has popped as well and will not reset.

It has been raining non-stop here the last few days but I would hope that a boat getting wet would be a big deal. It;s not like it has been swamped.

Is there some trick to resetting these breakers I am not aware of? Normally I would think I would be able to shut the power supply off and reset the breaker and have it pop if there is a real issue... these are just loose and will not reset at all.

Did everthing work for the last xx hours prior to this happening? On other boats that are new, l have seen breakers pop when they were wired backwards by accident from the factory (never heard of this on a MC).

I am not an electrician and did not stay in a Holiday Inn last night (others please chime in) but I would make sure everything is dry then kill the power from the battery then restore the power then reset the breakers making sure to hold them in for a few secconds (not just a quick push) . This hopefully will work for the time being but regardless, something is exposed or wired wrong (and sense it has been working then something may be exposed).

I had a similar issue about a month ago on a 2013 X25 with 15 hours on it. I found a loose ground wire that tripped the breakers. Might be worth a look.

I was able to take her in this morning. They were waiting for me when I pulled in and took her straight back to get checked out. It looks like the circuit breakers were bad and would not reset. The one for the stereo was only 5 amps and the one for the paddle wheel was 3 amps. They replaced these with a pair that were slightly higher amps (8 and 4 I think) and all is good. While they had it there they also upgraded my lcd software and took care of a couple of other small items. All in all they jumped right on this and took care of it quick, even without a true scheduled visit.

I'll update after this weekend to put an end to this one.

Thanks for all the input, E.

If a beaker will not reset by pushing it in and feeling and hearing it click then its still tripped or bad. Simple volt meter can test the breaker so you don't got all weekend without tunes and a speedo

Glad it's fixed. Sounds like you have a good dealer. Those are hard to find.
