Gambler electrical issue
« on: October 23, 2016, 12:49:11 PM »

Recently i bought a 1991 gambler. I have been looking for a wiring diagram so I can figure out what is going on with the electrical. There is power going to the main power switch and all down the switched along with the fuses, but the issue is nothing will work.

dmk, Can you be a bit more descript.  Not really sure what you are saying.  As I understand this you have power all the way to the fuse panel?  But nothing works?  What is Nothing?  Do you have Circuit breakers somewhere?  I also have a 1991 vintage boat and electrical can be a bit of a pia but I do have a wiring detail for my ranger.

No gambler experience here but can you verify that power is getting through the main switch?

Could be a common ground issue.

Hiya DMK, i used to own a Gambler years ago and never had a problem with the electrical.  From your description it sounds like you might have a grounding issue.  If you have a test light or meter ground it at the cranking battery and test all the fuses.  They should light the test light or show full voltage on both sides.  If they light on both sides, turn on whatever they go to.  If it doesn't work, find the grounding lug and check it and the ground side battery connection.  If "nothing" works and there is voltage at the fuses it screams grounding issue to me.
