new caribe owner - no power

Hi - just bought a 2013 Caribe d11. it has been running fine for two days. yesterday after docking, I tried to start back and there is no electrical power to anything that is not directly connected to the battery (vhf , stern light and bilge pump works when switches turn on). i have no electric current to trim the motor up and down, or to start the motor. one 5amp fuse was blown. replaced that and still no luck.

any ideas? first dinghy and looking forward to the forum community

thanks in advance

Welcome to Ribnet
Make sure you haven't accidentally turned the battery switch off. If not then to be honest, it sounds like you need to get that into a marine engineer.

Battery isolator switches are notorious for corrosion issues. It shouldn’t be too difficult to work out with a multimeter if that is the issue. Failing that it’s just a case of following the wiring... if you have blown one fuse is it possible you have others you don’t know about? (why are you blowing fuses) or you have a connection that has come loose or corroded somewhere between the battery and the distribution / switch panel (bus bar) on either pos or neg.
