Can 12 Volt DC Trailer Hitch Wiring From a 7-Way RV Connector be Used to Power a Winch


can you get d.c. power from hitch wiring to run the winch?


Expert Reply:

The wiring in your hitch is not rated for use with the Master Lock Electric Trailer Winch # 2953AT. The wiring could overheat and cause damage to the hitch wiring, the winch, or even your vehicle.

You will need to wire the winch separately. I recommend the Winch Trailer Wiring Kit # BDW20307. The kit contains properly sized wiring and connectors to make use of the winch easy and removable.
