    4788 dinghy davit power

    Sorry for all the newby questions but I can't seem to power up the dinghy hoist. I am confident it should work but think I am missing a switch or breaker somewhere. The one by the aft salon door is not tripped. Is there another switch panel for power to the hoist?

    Thanks in advance as always!

    The one by the salon door is the only breaker in that circuit.

    The connector for the remote tends to get dirty and need cleaning or just installing and removing the remote a few times.

    If that does not help, there is a set of Solenoids just behind the large access panel next to the davit.

      Thanks Kevin. I opened that hatch and found the solenoids and got it to drive the motor as needed. I need to troubleshoot the remote then.

      Thanks!

        The OEM remote is kinda crappy. I cleaned mine several times and put it back in service only to have it become unreliable over time so I replaced it with one I found on a heavy equipment site. No doubt it is over engineered for our purposes but it is waterproof and probably bulletproof and cost around $100. It is intended for use operating a warehouse crane. I dont have time to find a link now but will later if you need this. I also replaced the wall plug/socket at the same time for a better waterproof model.

          Here is a link to the ACI hoist controller that I purchased to replace the OEM Bayliner controller. With the options I wanted and an extra long cord it worked out less than $100

            Before replacing you might want to try spraying Electrical Contact Cleaner liberally on both the cord end and socket. A little bit of corrosion here can stop it from working.
