This question shows my complete ignorance when it comes to electrical systems. What do the solenoids in the winch solenoid pack do? Why not just run cables to the battery with a switch? Do they control the direction of current flow, i.e. winch direction? I saw CJ7Taz's reply to a solenoid post and he gave a quick diagram. I looked at it and just started drooling and babbling incoherently, so I figured it was time to find out what they really do. Thanks/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif.
