    Electrical problem on 1984 hunter 31

    Recently I seemingly tripped a breaker while working on the boat. The only load on my outlet breaker was an LED droplight, one mini fan and when I plugged in my a small vaccuum cleaner, the circuit blew. Now this is unusual because I've had in the past more load on that circuit without tripping...
