Re: Winch broke - simple or no?
Well, I did some checking. One of the studs on the motor is very close to the winch cover, but none appear to be touching.
I also followed the Superwinch guy's suggestion and rewired the ground wire from the frame to the (-) battery terminal. Wha-la. It works again. Go figure. I've got a direct ground from battery to frame, and the winch worked the first time just fine like this. The second time it screws up. I move the ground, now it's fine again. Hmmmm...
