I picked up the ski couple of days back. When launched on the water I found that the sound system cannot be switched on, the power and usb outlets are not working. Also the light in the compartment (blue from the outlets) is not working.

I checked the fuses in the main fuse block. They are all fine but I'm not sure what they are for as the user manual does not have any mention of fuse block.

Am I doing something wrong, is there a trick to this or it is just plain not put together correctly...

Thanks in advance.

PS. I called the dealer and they said to bring it in but before I do I wanted to check out if anyone has come across this issue or knows how to troubleshoot it.

Quick update. all is well. see below for what the issue was as suggested on greenhulk forums. Hopefully it will save someone else some grief when dealer forgets to connect the sound unit to the battery terminals.

Check around the battery for one or two loose wire ends.

Perhaps the dealer simply forgot to connect the sound system to the battery.

If you do find not-yet-connected sound system wires, check which goes to battery positive. Check twice.
bingo! Sound is now working (the sound control pad lights up and speaks make a sound), and power outlets light up and all is as it should be.

Next to the battery there is another box with fuses. this must be the 12 power audio amp unit. Two wires coming out to the back were just laying on the bottom of the inside of the hull with the ends obstructed by some other components. I was able to pull them up and voila they were showing the o-ring battery terminals. Not connected to anything so this would have never worked, contrary to what I was told by the sales person.

Thanks K447! and seamurph!

Hopefully this will help others and prevent taking too much stuff apart and wasting time getting it working.

It sounds like I have a similar issue. I have a 2021 GP1800r and the audio won't power on. The wires you mention are connected and a parts diagram shows that box as the "Power Balance System Assembly". Before I dig into it (or try to get in to a dealer), did you open the box and see fuses in there? My suspician (or I shuld say my hope) is that it's just a fuse. I find it hard to fathom that Yamaha would have connected the audio system without putting a fuse inline somewhere.
