I have a Wagner Autopilot
that has relays in the control box
mounted to the pump. There are 2 SPDT relays used to reverse the motor
. After about a year of full time cruising the N.C. points burn down to nothing and the N.O. points start sticking, causing me to make U turns. There is also 2, 5 UF capacitors in the circuit between the relays and the motor
I keep a spare set of relays for a quick change while circling ( not really ), but do capacitors go bad? and what about using solid state relays. I havent been able to locate the same type of capacitors.
