Any thoughts before I pay my electrician to look at the issue?

Put some dielectric grease on the cords ends and make sure they are connected properly at the pedestal and the boat....push and turn and attach your locking rings......if there is play after all that then there is a problem with the pedestal socket or your plug ends.
Please remember to unplug both ends ( power totally off ) before doing any inspection.

Dont be afraid to use a little fine grit sandpaper or scotch brite pad.
If you still have a problem pull out the shore power receptacles on the boat and check the connection on the back.
Bad shore power connection = high amp draw=failed equipment.
