Electric Winch Recommendation for a Boat Trailer


Can you bypass ignition switch wire on superwinch Lt3000ATV winch for mount on boat trailer. The superwinch UT3000 winch doesnt have ignition wire and might be better choice but i want load holding brake.


Expert Reply:

There are different ways you could wire Superwinch LT3000 # SW1130220 so as not to have to have the ignition on to use the winch. However, this winch is not really designed for use with a boat trailer. I recommend something more suited for boat trailers such as the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm # DL25200.

This winch features a strap rather than a wire rope so it will hold up better in marine environments. It does feature positive mechanical braking so it can hold a load. To mount it on a trailer you can use mount plate # DL24059.

I have also included a link to our help article on different ways to wire an electric winch.
