The knob on the side is the winch brake, if you loosen it you can pull the cable out by hand. If you tighten it, you cannot. So if your 12V quits, tighten the big black knob, remove the small gray one, place the handle on the shaft, re install the gray knob and winch away, it will get your boat back on the trailer.
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.
Wiring kits I have seen start at about 50 bucks.
