Recently I replaced the windlass motor with a new 1200 watt one. The tired old motor used to draw about 45A on its leisurely retrieve, this one sends the needle off the 50A scale, as far as it can go, and rattles the chain in.
The ammeter, which used to show quite small power draws, like <5A for the little Danfoss portable fridge, now only moves for a major draw.
I prefer "cause and effect" to the "coincidence" theory. Any ideas? Has it recalibrated itself? Should I just fit a 100A one?
