Warn Mutimount using Jumper cables.
 
I have a 9500i on the mutimount reciever hitch cradle. I have the plug hard-wired into the front bumper of my Cj7. I was considering running the warn cable (>$100) from the battery to the rear, then I remembered someone on the list knew where to get the connectors the MultiMount system uses, cheap and not from Warn.

So, in the interest of cost savings, and versitility, does anyone see a problem with using heavy duty jumper cables (=> size wire as already on the multimount) and putting a multimount connector at the other end? This would allow me to use the system in the rear temporarily, plus on my Ram, or anyone else's vehicle which has a strong hitch.

Also, does anyone know where those connectors are sold?

TIA!!

Thor, I dont know where those connectors are sold...and I too, owning a ram have thought about the HD jumper cables...but then I thought that jumper cables are designed for quick use only, not long periods of time, as you might have to in a winch pull. Then the comparison of intermittant and continuous duty solenoids popped into my head...Its not the same, but its the same principle...I wonder if someone here can shed some definite light on this....as mine is only speculation...

Remy,
I thought about the Long-periods part. Though using a trail rig, I don't think I will be using the rear hitch for long periods, just unstuck (Hopefully not long [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]) and my Dodge is not a trail rig (Width) mostly snow, and light-duty trails.
Am I correct in my assumptions?
TIA

Scott, I think the connectors are the same as the electric forklifts use ("genderless"). Here's a link that may be useful: <a target="_blank" href=http://www.andersonpower.com/>http://www.andersonpower.com/</a>. They make a bunch of differnt sizes. My bud buys them somewhere in Atlanta for $25 a pair.

You shouldn't have a problem using jumper cables, just make sure you get big enough cable. Some of those things look like 2 or 4ga, but are really 10ga with 1/4" of insulation.
Personally, I'd use welding cable. It's fairly inexpensive, and a lot tougher.

Thanks Guys,
The Warn are not Genderless, but they sure do look like to connectors in your link. I will wait untill they come back in the office to talk to them.
The wrangler link is for wires right? I did not see any warn-type connectors on it, however it is a cheap place for wires!
So far no one has commented much on the use of jumper cables, anyone see a problem with using them?
Thanks for the compliment, I think [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img], I have never met Faith Hill, though have tackled a lot of hills on faith [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img].
