I have a 2015 305 walk around. The windlass wont respond to the deck of panel switches.  I checked the breakers and no issue.  Anyone know where the solenoid switch is, or have any ideas?

Use a multimeter to be sure you have 12 volts on both side of the windlass breaker.  If 12volts on both sides, check connections at the windlass.


If it is a Lewmar windlass, I don't think there are any solenoid switches.
