Pearson 28-2 Manual - Nearly incinerated boat!
Bought a 28-2 recently and ran the batteries down. Long story short, rewired a different battery in incorrectly. The wire between the starter and the house got very hot. Nearly started a fire. Whoops! Now, I THINK I've got it wired correctly, but not sure. But, I can't get the Yanmar Switch to even light up when I turn the key so I'm wondering if it is getting power anymore, or if there is a fuse for it somewhere - I couldn't find it.
So, if anyone has any ideas, or a manual for the 28 (I saw that a few people had them, but I couldn't PM because I'm a new user - weird rule!), but a wiring diagram or anything would help this ambitious newbie set on blowing up my boat as soon as possible!
And I know a few will say get an electrician. I did, he wasn't a whole lot of use and didn't figure it out. I know, I know - get a GOOD electrician. I'll do that, but I'd still like to learn.
Thanks so much!
