Winch rocker switch and wireing

HEy all,

I am having an issue with my winch wireing. The previous owner has an automotive blade style fuse wired in between the winch and the battery. There is no selinoid. the fuse is a 30 amp fuse and I have an A200 warn winch. the wheeler can't pull it's self up a ramp onto the bed of a truck without blowing the 30 am fuse. I was wonderig if I can just remove the fuse portion and wire it directly to the battery? I was also wondering if I can use a larger fuse without causing any issues and also wondering what everyone uses for rocker switches. Should I be thinking about replacing all the wireing with some sort of after market switch?

Thanks.
John

Better yet why can't you just ride the Grizzly up into the truck with a ramp?
If you use a bigger fuse them the wire can handel it may fry your wire rather then blow the fuse.
A solenoid will help out a lot.
Good Luck

Google "warn A2000" for solenoid info. There was a recall involved. This winch has been discontinued but updates are avail for the A2000. Contact warn for proper wiring info ect.

I think your winch will pull 50 - 150 amps under regular use. Much higher when put under full load. It doesn't surprise me that you would blow a 30 amp fuse.

I looked at the wiring instructions at Warn dot com for your model and didn't see any inline fuses.

there is no inline fuse they had older style solenoid which you need. only other option would be to run jumper cables straight from battery, then you could reverse cables on winch for in out operation and diconnect them easy.

thanks for all the great info guys. I can let the winch out and pull it back in, with the 30amp fuse when using the plow, but if you tax the winch at all it will blow the fuse. I figured it needed a selinoid of some sort rather than a fuse. I will look into one. I really appreciate all the great info.

also, be aware that Warn calls their solenoid a "Contactor" for some reason.
