Without seeing it, I'd suggest starting from the main 12v Batt..looking at every connection for corrosion or arching (greyish-greyish black). Cripes can help newbies on low-amperage stuff such as radios, LED lighting. But after that properly soldered and sealed and above deck fusing will allow for cool runnings most of the time. When dealing in salt water conditions, always expect a disappointment sooner or later IF NOT CONTINUALLY checked/Maintained. If you see a crimp--would suggest inspecting for the above before continuing down the line. Lastly, above-board switch fusing will certainly corrode sooner or later.

Chris' right. Over-due ventilation always. Don't go by specs.
