Just thinking out loud here; hope he gets it straightened out.
He also said no power after the switch.
Good point Papa!
I had focused on the breaker, which was the root of my previous problem. it should be located upstream from the switch, so power at the switch should mean it's ok. Still, breaker could fail under load and just be passing enough electrons to show as close to battery voltage but not really any current.
The simplest problem is probably the correct one. I hope he is able to track down the problem!
