2011 188 hurricane. master power rocker switch not working

All electrical on boat is working except master power and all other rocker switches. none of the fuse compartments have pushed out a fuse. Could the problem still be a 5 amp fuse at the master rocker? all was working fine until today.

    @wilvet.  I'm not aware of the fuse you're referring to.  There is a circuit breaker on each switch which you've indicated none have tripped.

    Next place to check is on the positive cable near the battery there should be a circuit breaker there.  Make sure its not tripped.

    If all of that is ok, you most likely have a ground problem.  Remove connections at battery, clean and reconnect.

    Still not working, chase your main ground (tight fit, but you can see it feed in from the side of the boat from under the helm and runs across the bottom of each switch on both switch panels)  Make sure they're all connected and none are damaged or accidentally been pulled off putting stuff in/out of the helm storage compartment)

    let us know how you make out.

    I am having the same issue with my 2011 188 Hurricane Sundeck Sport. All switches and electrical work except the Master Power. Has anyone found the answer to this?
