Hi Tiltrider1,

Thanks so much!

Did that. I know which breaker controls it. It is on the "main outlet" breaker, i.e. the breaker that has most of the 120VAC outlets in the boat and nothing that I can identify other than outlets.

So, somehow, something tied to that breaker is putting this weird voltage onto that set of wires. I don't know if it is converting the 120VAC into the weird voltage or if it is producing or conducting it from some other source, but needs 120VAC to do that.

Another idea the PPO had, which I asked the PO about without any luck, was if the boat ever had any type of low-voltage AC lighting, e.g. landscape-type lighting.

Thanks again!
