Can someone tell me what these breakers are for on my 98 330 sundancer?
I do not understand the question. They are clearly marked. What do you have issues with?
I'm wondering why these are located under hatch and what they map too? I have experience with the windlass as i was winding up the line and probably went too far so i assume i tripped the breaker. I had to push the red breaker button several times as it seemed stuck (do they need to be lubricated? again not sure why the put these under engine hatch?) Other then that no experience with the others. For example what the control station vs's cabin main? What type or brand of breaker is this and do they need maintenance?
Sorry had a smaller boat for the last 14 years with nothing like this panel? Any general knowledge is appreciated
Think of them as fuses. You don't need to do anything with them unless they blow. Your breakers that you use on a daily basis are on the electrical panel. There is a DC Panel and an AC panel. Your windlass will be activated by turning on the windlass DC breaker, then the windlass on/off switch. There is also a momentary switch that you use to drop and retrieve it. The anchor will also have a mechanical fastener to prevent its accidental deployment. When you are running the boat, all of the windlass breakers and switches should be "off".
Sbw1 - you are always so helpfull thanks. I re wired my dash gauges and switches so learning about all of this electrical stuff as i go.
