That's highly unlikely. My thrusters run off the start bank. My boat is plugged in at the dock so fully charged when leaving. Upon returning, they will also be fully charged from running the engine. My engine starts at the click of the switch, doesn't crank at all, so my engine battery bank should never be low unless the batteries are old and need replacing. Also, I don't need to run my thrusters for long periods, just short burst to turn the boat and line things up. There can always be another "what-if", nothing is 100%.
