As a safety
, I have the power for my windlass
control circuit switched at the helm
. So while a solenoid could stick closed during operation, it would be very unlikely to have the windlass
suddenly activate while not in use. When the master switch at the helm
is off, there's no power to the up/down switch or the receiver for the wireless remote
, so nothing can power the coil side of the solenoid pack to engage it.
