Solid clicks and no goes has been my result since initial failure. Cleaned and tightened bus bars, no improvement.

Have you checked the ground bolt on bottom of the motor? It came loose on my trailer's winch and did similar.

just got as far as continuity (incl ground), not voltage drop.
still expect I just need to get new or repair motor. that alternator place is where I've been planning to go.

same result at first with a new 9K winch installed.  wiggled POS pos connection since i had already changed and cleaned negative frame connection and went from clicky and no go to clicky and go. 

did not reinstall since i had already stowed old winch in the green monster. 

had to use my truck to bend back my ramps to fit into your slightly smaller stake pockets on the trailer but worked well. 

tools and supplies prepared for full cluster this trip as i haven't had one in a while and am due.

interested in a new winch for this unit?  300$ installed?   

if not we can swap back yours to trouble shoot only 5 bolts easy.  I have to remount one of your cube lights too that i needed to disconnect for van bumper clearance.

I should be around most of this weekend.  tuning 5.3 Saturday with John at shop also.

Looking reasonable to not work this weekend, maybe I can get that bolt swapped and trans leak fixed from a month ago and shuffle the car over.

Ramp steel bought. That was a ~$250 theft, plus labor. Boo hiss.

Need to adjust one of the ramp holders. Front stop is too low on passenger side. So ramps are done but now trailer isn’t.

Wind sucks for welding weather.
