Ok, i have a problem i dont have time to evaluate right now.. Once i do have time, i want to know what to do right..

Ok, so my brother took the mosca and put it at his house during the storm since we were out of town.. During saturday nights rain and sundays rain it rained so much that the boat hull was completely filled to the top with fresh water.. My brother didnt realize it, but he said that my lights were on on the boat and the switch was lit up, but it was not on... So i told him to look in the hatches.. They were full of water.. So a ground out i suppose.. I had him drain the water and turn the perko switch to off etc..

So, what should i do to test this out once it is dried out etc aside from turning everything on... I just dont want to burn anything up etc

Thanks

Thomas

I would spray all the switches and connections that you can get to with CRC or some dielectric spray. This will get rid of the moisture. However, corrosion may be another thing.

Open all hatches, remove all switch covers and let them air dry during the hot afternoon sun. Remove the battery cables before you begin, just in case the perko is leaking off....

.....then cross your fingers..... worse case, fuse block starts blowing fuses.....you may try and spray it too, or blow air if you have a compressor.

good luck.

Thomas, if it was underwater it was jumping ground. With the water removed I would spray all the connections down to prevent corrosion. At least it was fresh water that got into it. You shouldn't have any problems. Those Optima's shouldn't have any problem getting wet.
