Electrical miracle ?
Do I have a secret powersource?
My bowlight is giving me problems(Aquasignal combined red/green with 10W Bulb).
Sternlight on same circuit is fine and indicator LED,s on E-Panel at Nav station is fine. I checked the bulb: tested working.
When I measure Voltage at the light fixture contacts without bulb I am getting ~13.6 V with bulb installed just ~2V. Funny thing is, my house bank is at 12.5 V right now. Where is the extra voltage coming from and why does it go down when the bulb is installed?
I am cruising right now and using my web-enabled Cellphone (better than nothing.
Whether I will make a nightsail into the New Year or stay at anchor depends on whether I get this figured out or not.
