Would like to install a Warn Winch M8000 on our new Enclosed Auto Trailer to be purchased soon. It will double in the meantime as our moving back to Texas trailer and haul our tractor back on the second trip. I have viewed quite a few You-Boob Video's about adding a winch and a battery to an Enclosed Trailer etc. Other than running Hot Wires direct from the Tow Vehicle back to the Winch direct, is there a way to keep a Deep Cycle battery charged on the trailer when not in use or while driving? By adding a Deep Cycle battery, is there a way to keep it charged or do I need to remove and bench charge each time? Sounds like I am confuse? Yup!
I guess what I am asking is... If I need a battery on the trailer itself, How do I keep it charged? Solar? Truck charging system? Direct line from Tow Vehicle? Bench charge each time?
