Electric short? need help, want to sail
Last weekend, I noticed that my GPS and VHF kept shutting off intermittently. After some trouble shooting, I isolated it to cycling the bilge pump, either in manual mode or when raising the float switch in the bilge sump. When I cycle the bilge pump, house lights, VHF, stereo, etc. all go dark and come back on when bilge pump stops. Pulling all new cable for bilge pump is going to be a pain due to access. Is this the right approach or is there another problem I am not thinking of?
Thanks for any help!
