Re: A question to the hive mind re Amel 54 (Sleipner side power) Bow thruster capacitor please.

Porter McRoberts

Thank you all. I really appreciate all the thoughts. 

Sleipner still sleeping. IMTRA seems willing to help. They had some questions which prohibited a final answer today. 
Regardless. The thruster thrusts well, sounds good without it. We turned around in the marina just fine. 
I’ll limit use without the widget and update when I get final answers

Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend!

Actually the capacitor may also help in reducing the sparking of the brushes and reduce the wear and tear on those things. So definitely recommend to replace. I can't tell you the value though as our Amel  is too far away to see.
