2013 Grady 335 Freedom. Factory rigged bow thruster. Works to port, but nothing when switched to starboard.

I read elsewhere it could the reversing solenoid. Can’t seem to find it. I plan to contact Grady but thought I’d ask here as well.

Any other suggestions on what to look at or what could be causing problem? I should also say that it worked fine last week, and problem started after 250 mile cruise from NY to MD.

Thanks-

It seems the solenoid is mounted directly on the motor. Side-Power has a great troubleshooting guide on their website. Unfortunately, I'll need to cut caulk and remove a deck panel to gain any sort of access.

X2 on the guide. I used it when mine quit. Ended up being the solenoid. It was right under the black plastic cap. It is a fairly large unit with several bolt on connectors and push connectors. Easy swap.
