I was out on the lake today excited to try out the new surfboard and ballast when I ran into a problem. I was filling a ballast tank with an Uber Pump plugged into the cigarette lighter in the glove box and everything including the engine just died. At the time I had the stereo and engine running. After looking around for a few minutes, I found that the master breaker near the battery had popped and was extremely hot. It would not reset for a few minutes, but eventually did and started fine. This happened at two other times today with relatively low electrical load on the boat. I'm thinking it may be something to do with the alternator. In the past the voltage guage is usually around 12, but drops lower if I have multiple things(stereo, blower, pump) going. Finally, the stereo cuts out after about 5 minutes if the engine is not running. Does anyone have any idea where I should start? Thanks
