I need a new one of these...can anybody tell me what exactly it is and where I can get one. It is some type of relay or timer box for the ballast pumps. My XStar has the PWT ballast upgrade with 4 extra pumps for each bag. Each pump is wired through one of these little boxes then into a fuse panel. The small plugs on the front are for the wires going to the switch. This one quit working on one of the small plugs on the front. And now my rear port ballast pump will not reverse to drain the bag, unless I switch the leads from the switch where they plug onto this unit. I took it off and there are no part #'s or brand names on the unit, making it very hard to find!!

It is a reversing solenoid commonly used for anchor windlasses. I am assuming you have reversible ballast pumps. It flip flops positive and negative. Your dealer or the brands specific manf. will want about $280+ for it.
TIP> If you look in a marine wholesaler catalogs like Land and Sea in the starter / alternator / ARCO sections you will find this item for 99 bucks. If you look for application specific like ground tackle or ballast pump controllers then get ready to get up off 3 bills.
Ill post this then look for an example and pin up a link.
