Wireless Windlass Reciever and Remote

Hi all,

I have been running with one of the cheap eBay winch wireless receivers and remotes for 2 years on my boat. Worked perfectly. (Like this

I had:
Positive on the box wired to 12v+
The 2 control wires wired to the windlass
And the black -ve taped off to nothing

For some reason this worked (with the -ve taped off)

I stupidly thought this was ok till I tried to wire in a new box (like for like) which didn't work till I wired in the 12v-ve to the -ve on the receiver.

Is it possible the original was faulty? Now I think about it, I am unsure how the original was working at all. Any clues?

Many thanks
