I am installing a Lewmar Windlass and seem to have an open

Customer Question

I am installing a Lewmar Windlass and seem to have an open connection because I have no power to the windlass. Is it possible to wire a 90 A circuit breaker backwards, or does it work irregardless of the poles? Wiring diagram?

Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

No it is not possible to wire the breaker backwards. It is just 2 studs, and you have positive in and positive out. It does not matter which is which.

Do you have a test light or volt meter, and are you near the boat now and ready to work?

No I am at home.

Oh, okay. Did you have any other questions for me other than the circuit breaker question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess not. Thanks.

You are very welcome. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). The website has already charged you to speak with me. And you do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.

Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.

Thank you

Hello, I noticed no rating has been put through. The website has charged you but they will not credit me for helping you out until that rating is complete. Did you have any further questions on the issue?
