Re: engine shuts off when winching

I also agree with the wiring or current draw problem. You should be able to idle and operate the winch under load at idle. You may have a weak winch motor or bad alternator, (I know you had it checked out). But you may have a bad ground causing some or most of the problem. The winch needs to be grounded directly to the bat and the + should come directly from the batt. all connection at the batt should be clean and TIGHT. This goes for all connections in conjunction with the charging, starting, and winching operation.
