Rancher 350 ES 2wd Ignition Fuse

Swamped the rancher a couple times today playing around, pretty much sunk it and got pulled out, got water in the cylinder, got all that done but noticed i had no display.. 30 amp main was blown unplugged the rectifier and that problem went away... However the ignition fuse seems to be shorted to ground, with my meter set on continuity it beeps on the black w green stripe wire coming out of the fusebox.. The wire coming of the killswitch is also black/green.. Anyone got a wiring diagram of what the ignition fuse feeds or ideas where to check?

Okay got most everything sorted here except replacing the regulator/rectifier. Seems this is a pretty common failure item. Is there an aftermarket brand/model that isn't prone to failure? Or any suggestions for keeping this one from dying?

I haven't had much trouble out of the stock ones on the Rancher.

Just to bring this thread to conclusion it was the rectifier causing the problems, replaced it and no blown fuses and the battery charges again

confirmed the rectifier was bad by unplugging it and replacing the fuse never blew with the rectifier unplugged.
