Prob a dumb question but dont know much about electrical. I installed a 2000lb warn winch. It's all hooked up and working however I can run the winch with the key off. Should I have tapped into a diff wire or is it OK and safe to have it wired this way? Thanks
I picked up power to the switch from the head light wire. No headlights, no winch. Key Off, No Lights, No Winch.
I did it in case something got into the switch, like after a roll over or tree branch or whatever. In a bad situation, like after a crash, I didn't want the winch burned up because I couldn't get to the machine quickly.
Plus, I can end up in a group and you never know when someone else leans against a button.
Its the one you don't see coming that will cause the problem.
