No power at 12-volt cabin panel main braker

Postby Oscar » Wed Jun 26, 2019 4:35 am

Hello to everybody who reads this post.
My boat is a Coastal 290 constructed in 2000.
This is my first post at all in a forum, so I have some difficulties. Furthermore, I have to write in english and this means more difficulties for me.
I apologize for this.
After winter season I started using my boat again and I have a new issue (all was ok in september): I do not have 12-volt power on the cable that comes to the main braker in the cabin panel.
I believe I have identified the departure of the cable at braker panel located in the stern bilge, nearby the battery switches. At this head of the cable I have 12-volt power.
It is so difficult to follow the cable path and, furthermore the schematics contained in the owner manual are blurry and not so easy to understand.
At page 31 of the manual I read that there are 3 DC fuse on the generator control panel (that I have still to find): is it possible that one of these fuses interrupts the power supply to cabin DC panel?
Is there someone that can help me on this topic?
Many thanks and best regards, Oscar.

HI Oscar, Craig here from Western Australia. I have a coastal 290 with the same issue and wondered if you ever worked out if there was a fuse issue. I can find a wiring diagram in the manuals or online.

The one I take care of has the main breaker feed go directly to a battery
