    New Question, mounting a Viper Elite 4500 lbs winch and the wiring seems off

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to place this question, but it does relate to the thread. I had no problems installing the hardware mounting plate, and winch. I have a pretty good idea where to install the contractor and the wireless module. However, I'm stunned to see the diagram suggest hooking up the red wire off the wireless module to the key power source. There must be a better way. Included two pics to illustrate...

    That just activates the contactor I believe, most use the acc circuit, aka cig lighter plug as its only on with ignition. I just used a tap terminal to tie onto the wire.

    If you want to use the winch anytime without the key on, tho most would not recommend, then put the red wire to the battery with a fuse or circuit breaker. But when using the winch without the engine running takes the battery down more quickly as you probably know.

    Thanks Jimbo, that sounds a lot better than jerry rigging the ignition key. You guys have any photos to share on that? Sure appreciate it. Got the wire taps for sure...

    Same here, then I use a wireless remote that plugs into the glove box receptacle, and if it quits working I can use the wired remote that plugs into the same place, with the IN / OUT switch mounted on the dash with a hunk of Velcro so it's easily removable.

    Yep, they are awesome machines, I will be spoiled by the visibility out front if I change machines down the road.
