So took the boat out to do a watertest for this upcoming season. Was going through all of the system checks. Noticed the Stereo was on, but had no sound. Checked factory amps and saw that the amps were not getting power. Could not figure out why there was no power getting to them. The fuses looked good and all connections looked good. Went on with the system check. Checked Ballasts and began to fill all 3 ballast tanks. When I switched on the ballast tanks to fill, the stereo sound came to life. Thought that was odd. Continued to let the tanks fill until they were pushing water out of the overfill tube coming out of the side of the boat. I then turned off the ballast fill and switched over to empty the ballast. Just when I flipped over the switches, the Stereo went silent again. I looked over the rub rail and noticed that the ballast system was not emptying. I switched back to fill, and it sputtered, but would not fill. I went back and forth a couple of times, thinking that the impellor may have something stuck in it. Nothing. So we drove around for a couple of hours with the Ballast tanks full, occasionally trying to empty them to see if it would come to life. Nothing. So now I have my boat on the trailer, with Ballasts full and the amps still not getting power to them. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? Do the ballast tanks and the amps have the same power source or use the same wiring? possibly just a loose wire, or corrosion somewhere in the electrical? Fuse? Any help would be appreciated. All other systems worked flawlessly. Thanks in advance. Chris
