Default Power Steering Verado

I have a 2005 Boston Whaler Dauntless with 225 Verado1075 hours, Was out the other day and power steering just died. Beast to troll with that way. New 90 amp fuse, Perko battery isolator, Some moisture in case. To have it just shut down is wierd but there was more hissing at the helm when over turning. THoughts? Thanks,

More hissing sounds like the fluid was extra hot. Maybe the pump overheated and died? How old is the pump?

Just launched and helped a guy retreive his boat when he launched it, turned to go out of launch, set a line and done. its a 2005 with 1075 hours and a lot of big motor trolling so it owes me nothing. Last night I trolled for walleyes in a heavy wind and it was tough.....but successful

Time for a new pump. Easy to replace. They have had their issues.
