Pressing that red button should trip it...and the yellow flag will jump out at the bottom...reset the flag and trip it again...then test your voltage. Remeber, only 12V + is passing thru the breaker. You will need a nearby ground source...preferably the lead that runs up to the Lewmar...If you have voltage read the following:

Are you reading across the connections at the relay? Is the relay mounted forward or in the console? The large red and black that go to the relay should be checked first and then make sure once the relay is energized the voltage is passing thru to the Lewmar..

There are several stages involved to get power to the Lewmar

Also, my Lewmar ProFish 700 came with a 50 amp breaker...25 seems a little light
