Anything that increases the amount of work the windlass motor has to do. This could be something inside or outside of the windlass.
A poor connection anywhere in the power path will cause lower voltage to the motor which will increase the amps required to get the same amount of work done.
A relay going bad can have a higher resistance connection inside that can cause low voltage to the motor.
