Default Contender Breakers

Good evening Ladies and Gents,

I have a 2002 Contender 27 Open, and am trying to identify a breaker...
Above my battery switches, I have an "l" shaped breaker panel with the following:

p/switch, B/Pump 1, B/Pump 2 and electronics..

Three are self explanitory.. but what is P/Switch?

Thanks in advance

Mike

Doesn't look like a factory install.
Ask previous owner what he did or just trace the wire

I'd call call Contender and ask, our 02' 31' Open has the same setup which makes me think it was factory vs something else.

Mike: Do you have a head in your console? I believe that is the breaker for the head...

I just completely re-wired my 99 27 so any questions PM me and I will try to help...

My Contender has a different breaker box due to additional circuits but I have a breaker for power to the electronics box.

Just rerigged my boat a few months ago and by memory this is the power feed that sends power to the buss bar for all the switches when you turn the power on. The 2 bilges should be full time hot to the floats.
