Can anyone tell me where I can get a meter.
Mainship didn't manufacture the meter, they just installed it on the boat. Look carefully, and you will probably see a manufacturer's name or logo on it, either on the face or on the back.
That said, if you're measuring 120 volts AC, all you really need is a replacement with the same range that will fit the same hole. A good electronics supply vendor (not Radio Shack) will be able to help you.
A marine electrician can replace your meter also if you are not comfortable doing it yourself.
Remember to unplug the shore power and turn off any inverter or genset before you start working on this.
