Using the "spare" switches on the Wurth panel is definitely useful for things like this.  I used switches for my retro-fit Fusion stereo, low current inverter, AIS transponder, and even rewired the charger for the VFH handheld so that this could be switch off once fully charged.

You need to identify a switch with a suitable fuse rating and then identify the corresponding sockets on the panel that this matches with.  You will need some blue/grey Wago plugs (769-102).  The Wurth panel supplies the fused power and a neat way of switching accessories on and off.

Can't say if you would need two switches for bow and stern, but I think not.  You would want both of these switched on together so your separate fuses will be "downstream" of the panel.

I would think there is just one controller on the pedestal, therefore....

Hey guys. Just chiming in here.  The bow and stern thruster may share a controller, BUT, they each have there own electronics which run the logic and actuators.  They are powered separately from the main fuse panel. If they are moved to the Wurth panel I would keep them separate. Also, being able to deploy them independently can come in handy.

Leon,

I think, at least on our model, the thrusters are linked - if one is inoperative for whatever reason they both will not operate. We had an instance where our bow thruster door was stuck and when we hit the deploy button both tried to open but when the bow did not they both retracted. I have heard similar from other Forumites with two thrusters. Seems like a stupid arrangement but apparently that is the situation.
