My panel has no power but charging batteries are charged and starter has no juice bilge pun also no power. I have not had this problem before so I look to the board for assistance.

Check & clean your battery terminals. No power to panel, and none to the bilge. Since bilge pump is normally wired directly on the battery, I would probably suspect problem with the negative side. Not a bad idea to clean both sides anyway.

Using the least to most investigation procedure, try rotating your battery selector switch a few times to ensure it's making contact.

Possible ground wire issue. I would check all the grounds, batteries, engine, etc.
