bow thruster fuse location on R-31

Postby Tugstone on Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:08 pm

My question will exhibit just what newbies we are. We have a 2014 R31S and our bow thruster went out yesterday. It whines but produces no action. I understand it’s likely a shear pin but thought a fuse check might be a good place to start. We have the wiring schematic and have located the Thruster Fuse Block but all the fuses are marked for bilge pumps, alarm, volt meter battery,and CO monitors. So where are the thruster fuses?

Thanks!

It is a large T class fuse, behind the switch under sink.

Hello Tugstone,

If you can still hear the motor spinning, then it's most likely a shear pin. The fuses are located on the outboard side of the battery switch compartment, beneath the cockpit sink.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,

My stern thruster made a noise when I tried it without it working
Some how I had picked up a stray line. It was just the fuse.
