The two large wires coming out of the on deck windlass motor go to the reversing relay (contactor unit) not the battery, the polarity should not matter on these two wires, since the contractor switches the polarity depending if the unit is lowering or raising the anchor, thought I would follow directions and attach M1 and M2 as described the the manual. There is not normally any other electrical wires that would come out of the on-deck windlass motor. There are smaller wires that come from the contractor and connect to the up and down switches, A1 and A2.
