Bought a Moomba Mobius XLV at the car auction I go to ever week. Been looking for one, and decided to buy this one. It was pretty cheap, 2005 model. However, it was a repo and it was left outside for awhile and had about 2-3 of water over the carpet. I put new batteries in it and the engine cranks and runs (I've still got to change all the fluids so I just cranked it for a couple of seconds). None of the other electrical systems work, like the bilge blower, bilge pumps, stereo, ballast pumps, lights, nothing.

Is there a breaker somewhere I'm missing? Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Bill

In the storage compartment under the stereo is a breaker.. A little pendulum type thing drops down when it is tripped..
try that..

Yep, that did it. Thanks. The crazy thing was hidden behind the batteries.

Took a call to my dealer to find that tiny tiny switch

Have you checked to see if your getting power to the fuse block under the dash? Have you replaced the fuses?

Starters don't like to be submerged. A replacement may be in your future if water got in it. Make sure it's a UL Marine listed one.

Trannys don't like to be submerged either. Check for water intrusion.

I'd change all fluids/filters & plugs. Good luck & enjoy the XLV!
