Could you send me that trouble shooting guide to A 54 bowthruster - I have never really understood properly how it functions with the relays?

That’s a useful document as it looks like it tells me exactly how to troubleshoot my problem. However, before I got a chance to use it properly the problem disappeared which, fortunate as it may seem, is also unfortunate in that I now don’t know the cause was!

I am assuming that the bow thruster extends and retracts OK. We had a similar problem that turned out to be the solenoid pack mounted on the side of the bow thruster motor. It had corroded and would operate in only on direction. I have attached the trouble shooting guide from Side Power. Some have rebuilt the solenoid(s) - I was not able to and replaced the solenoid pack.
