Hi Cliff. No if the engine is running the bow thruster works. Too early to say for sure, but I took the connector off the solenoid valve, sprayed it with WD40, and for the last few times it has worked. Keeping fingers crossed.

Hi Michael,

Re your bow thruster, and having had a little bit of experience with hydraulic pumps and motors, could it be that the system will only work when the engine-driven pump is over a certain RPM? (and therefore pressure?) Just a guess! Regards Cliff
