Hey, all. I’ve been having problems with my BlueROV2 where every few days one of the thruster penetrators will twist lose due to the torque of the thruster cable, requiring us to remove the housing and re-tighten. We’ve been screwing them in finger tight, and then using the tool to go a quarter turn beyond that. It’s not isolated to one penetrator, but has been an issue with three of them so far.
Either, is there something we are doing wrong here, or is there a solution to reducing the torque or maintaining tightness?
I’m curious why you have torque occurring on the thruster cable? In our BlueROV2 assembly guide the penetrators get installed first, so the thrusters can be rotated to have minimal cable torque before mounting.
