Glad you make mention of the dangers of a cable under strain. I have vivid memories of a railcar mover cable that broke and "spanked" me. No serious injuries, but twenty-four years later, I can still feel that jolt.

Andrew, thanks for the warning about the 7 pin RV connector. I think I will go buy a fusible link now.

I just want to thank everyone who responded with this post. I went ahead and got the winch last week and ordered the steel to make the mount. Yesterday and today I got everything put together and welded to the trailer. The winch is now easily removable so I can use it with the truck if I want. Now I just gotta get a plug to power it up and run the wire on the truck.
Again, Thanks everyone for the advice!
And thank you HARRY!!!

It was mentioned on one of the threads about the short remote cable. I have a Super Winch 4500 which I have had and used for over 5 years. Would recomend it. As for the short remote that came with the winch, I cut the 3 wire cord and put a grounded male plug on one end and a female end on the other end. Then I can put any length extension cord ( with ground) in the middle. Did that with my remote and have used it with a 50' cord in the middle moving engines around the yard or a 10' cord to load engines on the trailer.
