Registered User Sherm- What Rob said. The power hookup is pretty straightforward. AMA has a big about 10KW generator that we use for power. This feeds one big mother cable trunk with 3-four outlet boxes. The 12 winch chargers either plug directly in to the boxes, or cable with a single big gauge extension cord. The chargers are nothing special. Like Rob said, TK probably found a deal on 12 identical units. They are 12 amp output max, and ratchet down as needed. We start with all the batteries topped off, and leave the system running all day.

Design power supply for 12V 1. September 08, , If it is a hoist, and you fail to use a worm drive to create failsafe load braking, you might kill someone.

Nov 21,  · Harbor Freight winch owners That will allow the power of 2 batts, but won’t totally discharge your starting battery past where it will start your vehicle. Hank Chinaski, Nov 21, you can build/use a good set of long jumper cables for the winch hookup. I’d take the calmps off one end and put on ring terminals and bolt it directly to the.

It was right around 50 miles of off road driving. Here is our route, except the unmaintained jeep trails at point B do not show on the map I used to recreate our trail. Beautiful, but any vehicle could have made it over them. We came upon a crystal clear lake, with a forest service campground around it. My Wife wants to go back and camp there. Just after we switched to Burnt Mountain Rd, we had the amazing mountain view pictured above, and shortly after that we drove over a bridge over the creek below.

Burnt Mountain Rd, was a rocky drive, with some tight places in the forest. My wife was driving this section and she had to attack a tree with the whip antenna to avoid a rock. This was Frying Pan Road. The next trail was supposed to start right about where we hit Frying Pan Rd, but we never saw a trailhead for it.

New winch wiring

I have soldered thousands of joints over the past 50 years of electronic industry employment but those particular types of connections should be properly hydraulically crimped.

An alternator is an electromechanical device that converts mechanical energy to AC (alternating current) electrical energy, converts the AC to DC by rectifying it, regulates the DC voltage output to 12 Volts, and supplies this 12V DC power to charge the vehicle’s battery and power the electrical components.

So I got one and replaced the aged lead-acid battery that was leaking all over my fender. My single red-top filled the area under my hood and worked fine for nearly two years of hard wheeling, but after picking up a Premier Power Welder, I had to find some room to install the large control box for the welder. So, what you might ask, does needing more room under the hood and dual batteries have in common? Well, needing more room led me to explore alternate locations for some of the equipment already living under the hood.

I ruled out the engine electronics, my 12V air compressor and that basically left the battery. Batteries are big and heavy, so I thought if I could find someplace low and out of the way for the battery, I could free up valuable space, lower my center of gravity and get my welder installed. Here were my design goals: So, to start the process, I used the highly scientific method of a creeper and a tape measure and basically measured the dimensions of all the likely spots under my truck where a battery might possibly be attached.

I had not yet picked a battery, but I had a few types I had dimensions for and then checked the available locations to see if the battery volume would fit. Besides the location I found, below, I also noted that the area above the rear axle is quite open and would also make a good battery location, although I plan to install either a 2. Battery tray parts B: Battery tray assembled C: Battery tray installed Lo and behold, I found a location for two small batteries up above the rear drive shaft, below the passenger seats.

The bottom tray has two square recesses for the batteries, the top frame is the same except with the top web cut out to clear the battery terminals, as shown in photo B above.

The Mile Marker Power Steering Pump Hydraulic Winch can be purchased in either the “H” Series or the “HI” Series. The “H” Series has a separate solenoid assembly that can be remotely mounted from the winch. The “HI” Series has an integrated solenoid valve, so it’s always close to your winch.

This is the typical dual battery install. This is a quick way to wire dual batteries so both don’t become discharged when an appliance is left on or over used. The second battery is isolated from the primary circuit when the engine oil pressure drops, like when you turn the engine off I’ve built this system several times, everyone that has it seems to be happy with it, and I’ve never been stranded with it.

Off roaders, in particular ones that work or do trails by themselves need the capacity to not only Isolate one battery, but to be able to ‘Self Rescue’. This shows the basic design for just such a system, using ‘Off The Shelf’ parts from any discount auto parts store. Fancy aftermarket toys are nice for the guys that are more worried about color matching their rigs than actual performance on the job, but this system is designed to do WORK!

This is what is known a ‘Integrated Operational Redundancy’, meaning if something fails, you may not even know there was a failure until you are doing maintenance on your system, and it WILL NOT leave you stranded with a single starter solenoid or battery failure. I have included some wiring for the solenoid that you should study and be familar with, since it will come into play later Now comes some of the added wiring, First, we have to do something about charging.

Since the batteries are actually isolated from one another when at rest, we have to do something about discharging and charging! Provision has been made for the high current drain to feed the starter through the dual Starter Solenoids, but there is NO provision for Common low current discharge, or common charging of this set of batteries.

It might be a generator, wind turbine or solar panels. There are plenty of ways to provide yourself with a reliable source of post-disaster electricity. There are all sorts of reasons why your power supply might not work. What if a stronger than expected EMP damaged your generator?

Tug of War: The Ultimate 12v Winch Test. Rotate the power knob and plug in the handheld control, and its LEDs indicate power on, winch forward, and winch reverse, all different colors depending on status. Two bright LEDs on the control box indicate the same status, and are easily visible from feet away to someone in a vehicle being.

Instrument cluster Relay module The tire scrubbing, which also creates unwanted heat and wear in the tire, can be eliminated by turning the inside wheel at a greater angle than the outside one Ackerman steering. Some competitors use parallel steering instead of Ackerman steering. Bump steering defines the change in the forward steering angle thus wheel position as the suspension travels through its full motion. A large amount of angular change 5 degrees to 7 degrees will alter the vehicle’s direction and excessively move the steering wheel.

Ackerman steering design Ackerman steering design provides more responsive steering, decreases tire wear when used on hard surfaces, and is turf friendly see description below. Minimal bump steer eliminates unintended vehicle direction changes when traversing terrain and permits less feedback to the steering wheel see description below.

Ackerman steering graphic The Ackerman steering principle defines the geometry that is applied to all vehicles two- or four-wheel drive to enable the correct turning angle of the steering wheels to be generated when negotiating a corner or a curve. The red lines in the picture represent the path that the wheels follow. This wears the tires on hard surfaces, scrubs or tears the turf, and lessens the effectiveness of the steering. Dual A-arm front and rear suspension provides a smooth ride over challenging terrain and excellent hauling characteristics XUV front suspension detail To complement the most capable frame available in a high-performance utility vehicle, the XUV is equipped with four-wheel independent suspension.

Dual A-arm front suspension features include: Unequal length, dual A-arm construction for superior wheel control and travel Power is transmitted from the engine through a continuously variable clutch system to the transaxle.


Wicked Winch of the West Lift-system troubleshooting Flagstaff’s lift-system is one of the easiest to operate and maintain of any pop-up camper. In fact, the lift-system can operate for years without any maintenance at all. However, lift-systems have parts and–even though salespeople don’t like to admit it–parts can wear down or break.

Here are some tips to keep the camper popping up and down for years to come.

Warn Winch Basic Diagnostics The following Trouble Shooting Tips are a collection of the most frequent problems that we encounter with Warn Winches. Most of these are simple electrical problems and are easily solved.

New colors and hot, custom looks are just the beginning. At the core it’s pure ShoreLand’r with rock-solid dependability and unmatched performance. This is not just another pretty face. It’s a revolution at the ramp. This equates to about pounds per roller 2, pound. The size of the roller and material of construction also play a key role. Our standard roller contacts the hull surface in an area of about one square inch.

This equates to pounds per square inch psi of pressure each place the roller contacts the hull. Smaller diameter, hard rollers used by some manufacturers may only have. Recommended carrying capacity is based on shipping weight of the trailer with standard equipment. Adding optional equipment may decrease the trailer’s carrying capacity. See your dealer for your specific application.

Share this Robin Stover Getting unstuck while four wheeling is a rite of passage everyone must experience to be considered a trail veteran. Whether mired in deep mud or wedged between two rocks, the vehicle extraction process can induce feelings of frustration, humility, and even desperation. However, even in the worst stuck scenario, one can avoid all of those displeasures by deploying the pulling power of a trusty winch.

Aug 30,  · If your winch has power in and power out as most winches do, there will be 3 wires that you will need to connect to a rocker switch. Below is an old thread where I showed how to use a 7 pin DPDT Momentary Rocker switch for the winch / replacing the standard handlebar rocker switch that comes with a lot of winches for ATVs/UTVs.

Remove the seat and right side fairing cover with M insignia , behind the fuel tank. To remove the fairing, release the plastic peg on top by pushing the center inward and pulling the fairing upwards until the peg releases, remove the M6 button head bolt at the bottom of the fairing. Pull the fairing outward from the rear and upward near the plastic peg to release it. Once it is free from all plastic pegs pull it forward to release it from the bottom of the fuel tank.

Remove the right side cover above the exhaust-mounting bracket secured by one M6 button head bolt, retain bolt for later. Remove the chrome steel cover above the exhaust secured by two remaining bolts, this chrome piece will no longer be used. Remove the large left rear rubber grommet and flanged steel collar from this chrome piece, to do this press the steel collar out of the rubber grommet first, once the collar is removed push the rubber grommet out of the wire loop on the chrome piece, set aside for later use.

Locate the exhaust valve actuator solenoid and harness and disconnect the black 3-prong electrical connector and white 2-prong electrical connector. Remove the socket head bolts securing exhaust flanges to cylinder heads, set these fasteners aside for later use in reassembly. Support the weight of the exhaust system and remove the 2, 8 mm bolts and one 8 mm nut securing the exhaust mounting bracket and exhaust assembly.

Keep these fasteners for use later. Remove the stock exhaust system as one complete unit; this includes the stock exhaust bracket, headpipes and muffler, exhaust valve solenoid and cables. The exhaust valve actuator solenoid must now be removed from the stock exhaust-mounting bracket.
