My windlasses stopped working.
They have been wired from factory so that the engine must be running.

Now there was no power to the switch on switchboard.


I searched all over but could not find the fault. Very difficult to follow the cables. :-(
Behind the seat, under the switchboard I found a big relay for front windlass and a small releay. The small relay seems to be for the windlasses too.
But that was ok, there was 12 volt in and out when motor was running.

Finally I made a connection from the big windlass circuit breaker to the switch on the switchboard. Then both front and rear windlass was working again. Now the engine does not matter.

Anyway.... I would like to find the fault. Anyone know anything?

Sea-U is a 370e #532 located SW Norway

2A Fuse beside alternator on port side engine. If you look at the one-line in the bottom right of the diagram you will see it, this controls relay K1 located on the backside of the DC panel. Had same issue with mine.
