Question

What is the on/cool down time

Went to Horthern today to look at winches and had my eye on the 9500, but after seeing this one on the net, (backordered), which is probably why I didn't see it in the store, I am really liking it. Just need to know the on/off time. Thanks.

P.S. The people at the store are very helpful, Thank you guys and girls

Staff Answer
The winch is rated as intermittent duty. Double line rigging will reduce the amp draw and reduce heat build up. This allows for longer continual use.

Question

model#vr8000 winch Can I hook it up to the 12 volt wire on trailer wiring harness?

Will the standard trailer wiring harness handle the electrical load? Do you need to run a ground back to the truck? Or can you ground it to the trailer?

Check the PDF file under the content links for wiring information on page 5. The (72") red cable would attach to the motor from the battery with the motor ground attaching to the solenoid with the (72") black cable connecting to the battery as well.
