Have now also installed the wireless remote for the windlass and the bow thruster. The windlass was easy but the thruster made trouble.
Every time I tried the thruster is ran for an glimse of a second and then shut off. The problem was that the negative was not common ground between my consumer batteries and the windlass/winch/thruster bank. So the remote reciever got the wrong negative as feed.

To avoid that the Anchor Windlass switch and the thruster switch both on the e-panel can "see eachother" and by accident power each other - the remote has a feed line from both switches but they are going through a diode / rectifer egp50g (3 pcs. Shown)

As the bowthruster is retracteble it is still the helmsman that desides when to deploy/retract the thruster. The crew on deck can only engage the sideways operation of the thruster. And If the anchor switch on the  E-panel is not engaged - it is not possible by accident to lower the anchor during docking manoeuvres...
