    I have a 98 Sea Ray 290 Dancer. When I bought it the windless does not work. When I hit the up and down, I hear a click and hear the motor, but nothing happens? Solenoid maybe? My second issue is in the process of trying to resolve the issue, I cant remember where the power goes on the main rocker switch. I have a "main" rocker on the left which serves as only power but has 8 terminals. Its a Carling, but I have no idea which is which and cant find it. The right up/down switch had a Green, Blue and Red power wire. The Red splits over to the Main Rocker, but cant figure out which terminal. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    My 98 290 did the same thing. Thought it was the control box and got one cheap from a member on this site. Was also told to just tap on motor with a hammer to see if that was problem. Went to install control box and right befor tapped on motor a couple times and boom. No more problem and works like a charm
