Need some advice on how to best troubleshooting my 120 ac power on my starboard side,
shore power is on and indicates voltage is present, breaker is also on,,, my port side power is working fine
not sure what steps to take ,, also im not sure if there something else that would cut power before the breakers ?
 
Today took a volt meter to verify if the breaker was ok, and that checked out ok, power goes thru it in on position and not in the off position , there 3 outlets that are connected to the
starborad breaker , im not aware of any ground fault breaker and i turned the breaker on and off serval times, its seems like there all connected to a junction box and and some
how i lost the connection for the 120 coming out of the breaker . ?i need to see were the cable goes coming out of the breaker

Ground fault plug
 
sounds like a gfi outlet to me too.
could be located in the galley, bathroom or other obscure places...
 
From what i can see none of them have a reset buttons like a typical gfi , there only three visable outlets i can see ,
i will see if i can find one buried.
i appreciate all your support .
 
there is one on my 260 i bet you have at least 2 on your 360.
 
After taking apart my electrical panel and un doing i few outlets,,, and just when you think you know your boat ! guess what i find,
a GFI outlet in the starboard side storage locker , and it was tripped, i reset it, and all is well ! thank you for all your help
you guys kept me looking and saved me a bunch of dollars on a electrical guy
Thank You
 
Just saw this thread. I had the same problem in my 280, the GFCI that I couldn't see behind the captains chair was tripped. Finding the GFCI proved to be the hardest part of the troubleshooting process.

Happy it worked out...
The GFI's are located in unusual spots for some unknown reason ....
 
There are two sets of breakers on my boat ,the port and starboard side, i'm diffenetly going to start looking for the one on my the port side
 
Your right why they would put a outlet in my storage locker which i think i opened twice since i had my boat, is beyond me
AND A GFI NO LESS, that controls all the ac starboard outlets.
