Thank you for responding.
Not sure of manufacture for the Windlass: I bought new at West Marine last year. Works fine, all wiring was already there from previous motor failure.
The momentary switch is on dash (3 way up down off)
I think your right. 2 yellows are up and down and the 2 reds have to be power? I will test this evening. The remote had no directions just 4 wires that I did figure out via google are up / down / + / grnd Each wire has an end fitting (don't know what it's called, circle of metal to attach to a post) Do I simply attach + to one of the existing positive terminals on back of existing dash switch, ground to any ground, up and down to the two yellow wires??
If so, I guess I have a 50/50 shot at getting it right the first time?
I know this sounds real stupid, but I really do hate anything electrical
