Are those breakers inside or outside?

Inside the boat apparently there is breaker box for all outlets somewhere. The panel outlet switch does not light up when turned on.

I donít think those breakers are rated for exterior use. One of them may have gone bad internally.

Unless you enjoy the chase more than using the boat, call in a marine electrician.

My '08 MS 34HT is set up similarly with 2 - 30A inputs and a transfer sw that allows everything to run off #1. Only difference is I don't have the rotary selector.

From what you describe my guess would be that main breaker #2 has stopped working / won't connect but that's only an educated guess. Breakers get old and do experience failures. I would start checking w a VOM where you 125V and where you don't when Sw is set to 1&2 and both breakers are on. Above easy enough if save w a VOM and you get access to the back of the panel.

My reasoning is the set up worked before w 2 inputs and from what you described something caused both #1 & #2 breakers to trip. What ever that something was might have been enough to cause one to fail open and no longer function. It's a place to start. If V in but not out that confirms breaker is the issue.
If no V in or out of breaker then you need to back track points along line #2 to see where you have & lose V...
Rotary sel sw, breaker at boat inlet, boat inlet, cord #2, pedestal.
I think you said you swapped cords #1 & #2 so those should be OK and issue is between inlet and breaker #2

You are using 2 cords Correct?

He is using a Y at the boat and has swapped ends with no change. This means the problem is on the boat.
