When President Bill and I got stuck in the snow on our way to Meadow Lake I did some heavy duty winching and suddenly my winch stopped working. Further investigation showed that the positive battery cable from the winch to the side battery post of my Optima battery got so hot that the post melted and fell out of the battery. When I purchased this battery last year 4Wheel Parts in Ripon installed it.
” I have since learned that in the literature provided with the battery it clearly state to not hook a winch to the side battery posts.”
I didn’t know this so I’m sharing the info with all of you winch owning wheelers.
