Lewmar bow thruster turns itself on

Iíve replaced the controller for my Lewmar bow thruster for the third time in the last two years - one quit working two weeks after I put it in and was warranted. It worked for a year or so and went erratic. I replaced it a week ago. Fifteen minutes after hooking up to a mooring ball today, the bow thruster starts on its own. I had to shut off the battery switch. Whatís up with that?

Re: Lewmar bow thruster turns itself on

just because it is new doesn't mean it is right. I bought a 5 function digital thing for my motorcycle . it had 3 wires , ground, hot with switch on and hot with switch off . I went through 5 of them and gave up and they only charged me a 15 percent restocking fee. I was an electrician on nuke submarine for 3 years.
