Thanks for all the input,Beach House,I,did reverse the wires on the switch still no go.
I,beleive from all that you folk's posted that my problem lies with the
solenoid or motor
,I'll jump the solenoid and try and get the motor
to run,backwards.if that doesn't work then I,need a motor,I,checked all conections first before I,did any thing elese and cleaned them.No Help.My fear in not correcting then problem is two fold if I,feefall the rode
and the up quits 100 ft plus of chain is a lot of hauling,especially since I,am singlehanding
shorts something may develope leading to fire the Sailors worse nightmare.
Thanks again all
