Sideshift Maintenance
Maintaining Your Sideshift Thruster

To maintain and protect your investment replace the anodes once a year.
In addition, if the bottom of your boat and outdrive components need anti-fouling paint , we recommend coating the section of the thruster which is under the water with the same anti-fouling paint.
Check that your air line is in good condition.
Ensure batteries are fully charged.

Replacing Sacrificial Anodes


 
 
To Remove: Grasp the anode with pliers and turn counter clockwise.
 
 
To Install: install the new anode by turning it clockwise to the bottom and then give it an extra half turn.

Review of the product:
Operation: Outstanding. Far exceeded expectations. Docking was a pinball game before installing this bow thruster. Now its a non event. There was no learning curve. We're in a very tight marina with little space to maneuver. I took lessons, but still had probl(Read More)
