    I have a 1995 40 express that has lost power on dash to aft bilge , navigation lights, and dash panel lights. Batteries went dead and we recharged them. Now no power on those items we have checked all the fuses, and circuit reset under floor.. is there a reset somewhere else or another fuse pannel.. thx for any advise

    Is there a main breaker panel in your bilge? Have you checked that?

    Yes.. Was was wondering if there was a circuit breaker in between the fuse panel and the circuit panel

    I have breakers behind the battery switch / selector panel in the cockpit. I bet you do too.

    Do those items all get ground from the same place?

    Glad it was something simple. It usually is when it involves the 12 volt stuff.
