Can anyone tell me what this is for. I’ve looked all day and can’t figure it out. It’s in front of the thermostat and below the ignition cant see anything that it would plug into
well the pre-built contactor relay for a winch ususally pulls power from the same power as the source for actually running the winch but yes you could use it to seperate them and use a DIY set of relays and have the rocker switch take the triggering power from the acc connector; i would count it as a waste of an extra power port and overcomplication of a contactor relay system but it is certainly a viable option.I didn't mean the winch itself.... but it could be used as the power source for the solenoid.
that is true, way back when it used to be a set of heavy duty continuous use solenoids that would flip the positive and negative but most (outside of heavy duty industrial winches which can still use those due to the insane current requirements) now use a dual throw "contactor" relay module.Maybe they are different than back in the day. You usually had to tie into a key-on power source for the solenoid.
hey i'm not too far off from counting the months till i start hitting the hill as far as tech knowledge (in all likelihood), i'm 33 this year and the only reason beyond interest i keep up with new and current tech and electronics is because i'm a sysadmin and i have hands in the systems design for IoT asset tracking systems at my job so i have to stay current.man I'm getting old... lol...
