Boat winch question
I was just after some ideas or options. My boat trailer has a winch that is a modifyed starter motor and flywheel. When I want to use it, I have a battery that is mounted on the trailer and just plug the terminals on (same size as a car battery leads). The annoying thing is having to recharge it every few trips because it obviously has no alternator connected to it.
Now the thing is, I have my dual battery set up in my patrol with an allrounder battery. Would I be able to modify the starter motor positive to a plug so I can plug it in to my fridge plug? The wiring for the plug is the ARB kit so it is bigger than the factory wiring. Would this work?
The other option is running a postive battery lead from the front to the back with a switch, but that would cost a bit.
