saildog1 I have the wireless remote for my Lewmar and love it. I also wired up a switch adjacent to the wheel inside a cockpit locker as a secondary switch.

The intention is to have the windlass solenoid and wireless unit mounted in a box inside the forward cabin within a meter or so of the windlass.

With reference to the schematic here

I need to provide the remote unit with a pos and neg supply. What would be the 'best practice' for doing this.
Run a 2 core from the distribution board at the nav area via a spare switch, or is there a more convenient way to do it?

I am pulling through 2 thumping great cables anyway so one more wouldn’t matter.

I did think about taking the pos feed from the solenoid pos battery connection and fusing it. This would conveniently switch on the unit when the main breaker was closed. But somehow that didn't seem right and obviously that still left the negative to obtain.

Any guidance much appreciated

You might find the following thread helpful: Windlass Installation

When I installed our windlass I did not install deck mounted switches due to their high failure rate. I have a wired hand-held controller that plugs into a fitting near the windlass but also a "Quick" wireless controller that allows use to deploy and recover the anchor from anywhere on the yacht.

FWIW...
