lost 12 volt power to control (breaker) panel on a 1999 330 fiesta vee

I was in the process of replacing a faulty head elect. flush pump and noticed the lights kicking on and off . then about the 4th time they have never came back on .
I have power from battery to batter switches, but none to breaker panel . I was wondering where the wires run  from battery switch to panel ? Are there other breakers or connectors between the two ?

    With the flickering it sounds like a wire came loose

    @sunsetandtrails, look for a loose ground wire. This will often cause flickering and power loss. The loose ground may not be readily apparent. I chased a loose ground for hours until I went back and retightened a ground that I "thought" looked okay. Good luck!

    ok....will check . I did notice a ground on the panel loose, and hand tightened it  temporarily. Will tighten with wrench tomorrow.
    Thanks Michael T

     Handymans342.....sorry misleading, not flickering, it was an all off for a few seconds and back on for 30 seconds.......type thing . It may be the ground on the panel .

    Ground seems a likely candidate.

    @sunsetsandtrails I believe I am having the same issue.  Randomly throughout the weekend my ligthts inside slowly dim and then die.  Everything on the right side of the panel goes dead.  When I return the following weekend its all back on.  Can not figure it out.
