Thankfully we were there at the boat (on it’s lift) when smoke started pouring from the engine compartment vents.. Would have been minus my favorite boat of all time had it happened during the week as it’s direct wired to battery and the battery switch will not shut off power to it. Thinking a fuse between battery and sensor should be in order as it obviously shorted out. Not sure if it was internal or from the wireds being pinched on the back over time.

Wow – close call! What is the purpose of the switch?

Sensor for bilge pumps. Since my boat stays on a lift I’m having a hard time hard wiring the new one to the battery now without putting in a switch to it. Wonder would a in-line fuse have prevented the short/fire?
