Worked not to bad. Noel

Would be better pulling the item uphill to keep cable tight. I was pulling down hill and had one front tire flat. So it wanted to turn the steering wheel to the left. Any way if I had the item closer to the tail gate it would better to. I was just seeing what it would do far away.

I usually try to get them close before winching them. A second set of hands can do wonders!

I had a wireless control for my trailer winch for a while. When it died I took an old extension cord and made a 40 foot control. Made my life a lot easier. If nothing else I could stand 40 feet away from an iffy load pull.

They do make your life easier.
I've always heard that you shouldn't let the winch go slack or you could damage the cable when it bunches and you really start a pull.

Very true, Alan! The winches come with the max amount of cable in them. Any cross wind can take up space needed and bind things.
