Electric Boat Wench
My husband wanted this wench for our boat, & once installed, it works great. HOWEVER....the installation left something to be desired!! Forget the instructions...he had to do modifications in order for it to fit properly where it was supposed to. It took about 2+ hrs. to get it mounted. On the other hand, once installed, it works great. As for recommending to a friend....for installation...NO...but for finished product...YES...

far too involved to be practical
After purchasing this winch, unboxing it, and reading the instructions, I decided to return it. The process of wiring the winch for power is way too involved for most people to be worth the trouble.
Your main options are basically 1. running heavy gauge wire from your battery to the rear or your vehicle and either mounting a permanent receptacle or leaving a coil of wire somewhere in the back, or 2. mounting a battery in your truck bed or on the trailer somewhere. I have 2 tow vehicles and there's no way the wife was letting me run wires all over her new Tahoe, so option 1 was immediately out of the question, not to mention the cost of 50 feet of heavy gauge wiring and 2 recepticles. option 2 meant buying another battery, battery box, mounting hardware and wiring not to mention i would have to worry about keeping it charged, which meant more wiring or buying a portable charger (my boat is all on board).
Either option would probably have cost me at least another $100, which meant I could buy 3 high quality manual winches for the cost of putting this one on. It felt like I would be causing a lot more problems than i would be adding conveniences, so I made the call and bought a very nice manual winch instead for a 3rd of the price installed.

dial is to lock the spindle to the motor, with a loss of dc power good luck loading the winch handle that this product comes with is its only downfall, howerver a couple of nuts from your local hardware store jamed together and a 1/2 in breaker bar or lug wrench worked great for me
No. It requires too much current to run off any existing wiring in your trailer or truck. you'll need to run additional wiring or install a separate battery, which is why in my opinion electric winches aren't a practical option for most people.
I bought one in Feb. 2009. Ran a 30 amp fused wire from the battery to trailer light plug. Cut the clamp connectors off the power cord and hooked it to a plug for the connector. Had trouble with it all summer, it is now Nov. 2009 and the last two times out I had to hand crank the boat onto the trailer. Winch is coming off and putting a manual winch back on.
Well, yes, it can be wired to the brake circuit but chances are the first time you used it a combination of the following three things would happen:
1. At best you would blow the fuse to your brake lights.
2. You will cook your brake light wiring and maybe more.
3. At worst, real expensive damage would happen to your vehicles electrical system.
As near as I can tell this winch has 30 amp protection and a set of alligator clips. The only real way to hard wire it is to run the appropriate sized wiring between the battery and winch plug. Same concept as your trailer light connector but with 8 gauge wires and bumper plug for the winch.
I would like to know if this item has a better performance then the Trac Day-runner because from what I read about the trac day-runner is not impressive at all. And I need a product in that line, what do you suggest that I buy. Thank you...
All the neg feedback on this product is not accurate in my opion. I have two day runners and they work flawless. I guy said it won't pull my boat on. Mine won't either if the trailer is not backed into the lake were it should be and the battery does not have a good charge. I have 2 heavy 17 & 19ft G3's around 4000lb. each and it pulls them on with little effort. As far a wiring, I bring a deep cycle that I put in the bed at load time and is rigged with a quick connect. All I can say is that if I wear these out I will by more Trac's
