Video Transcript for Superwinch Electric Winch Wiring Installation - 2008 Ford F-350

Today on our 2008 Ford F350 Super Duty we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Super Winch Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, for up to a 16,500 pound winch, part number SW2008. Take off our rubber dust cover, plug in our winch. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it. We've used the same universal bracket 18136, available on our website. We're going to mount our plug onto that. We'll take a 7/16 wrench and we can tighten those down. You want to make sure you don't want to tighten these too tight, again they're plastic, the plug, and it can break.

On our rear harness our ground is going to be a short wire, cause we're going to ground it right to the frame rail. We're going to feed it up through, we're going to use the existing bolt hole in the frame, and we're going to place a bolt thought the hole, and we'll place our ground strap. Washer and nut, and we can tighten hat up, and zip tie the excess. Bunch up our cable. We ran our power wire up along the frame rail. Trying to keep it in line with the factory wiring harness whenever possible.

Over the axle, made sure we zip tied it nice and tight. Then we came down along the bottom of the frame rail, so along the frame rail on the bottom of the gas tank. Then we went back up, and now we're tied to the outside of the frame rail. We went through the body mount, and then we went back up inside the fender well, and we're going to come out on top next to the battery. Allowing the wiring harness through the fire, up to the bottom of the firewall.

Come across, wrapped around our battery tray. We're going to attach it to the positive side of our battery. We'll take this 10 mm bolt loose, place it over the stud, and reinstall our nut, tighten it back down. We'll zip tie our cables, keep them nice and secure. We're going to leave a little bit of excess so you can get to your fuse box down there. Tie our last piece of cable here out of the way.

We're going to take our shortest single wire. We're going to route it down next to the battery, and it's going to come out in the fender well, so we can attach a ground point from the battery to the frame rail. We're going to take out the nut that's on here, and we'll set our negative cable on there. Then we'll tighten that back down. Now we'll take the self-tapping screw, and I'm going to run it into our frame rail, and we'll zip tie our wire in place. Pull our zip tie, cut off the excess. We can go ahead and test our wiring to make sure that it works. Take off our rubber dust cover, plug in our winch. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the Super Winch Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit for up to a 16,500 pound winch, part number SW2008, on our 2008 Ford F350 Super Duty.

- SW2008

by: charles l.03/25/2011


The product was exactly as expected; my rating is a 5 Excellent, if it shows a 4 it is because there were 2 selections below Poor and I didn't want to guess that the bottom circle was Excellent, in case it wasn't. I run a Warn M8000 12V winch, and this connection and set-up work perfectly for it. Installation is a breeze, just make sure you keep the wiring clear from the exhaust system, of course this goes with any electrical wiring, regardless. Also, the price, service and delivery were Great as well, Thanks to etrailer.com I can definitely recommend this product, and Etrailer.com 10380

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Correct Way To Wire Warn Trailer Winch Up to Be Powered By Truck Battery
  • Yes, I can guide you through the correct way to power your Warn 4000 lb winch by your vehicles battery. You will need to use the item you selected, Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, part # sw2008, which uses quick disconnects. You can use the Tow Ready Battery Isolation Solenoid, part # TR118665, in-line with the positive battery cable to keep from draining power from the vehicle battery. Hooking up the winch with part # TR118665, would only allow the winch to be used when...

  • Powering Trailer Mounted Winch from 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • The wiring that feeds the 12-volt accessory circuit on the 7-way trailer connector is of insufficient gauge to allow enough power to pass through to run a trailer mounted winch. The main function of that circuit would be for lighter-duty applications, such as providing power for interior trailer lights or to maintain a trailer mounted battery. To provide power for your trailer mounted winch, you can either install a battery on the trailer to power it, or use a quick disconnect like...

  • How to Charge, Maintain and Wire a Winch Battery, Wiring Front of Truck to Trailer
  • Running a charge line from a vehicle charging system for charging a trailer mounted battery can be accomplished but the vehicle charging system does not have enough power to charge a battery that distance away from a discharged state. The charge line is only capable of maintaining a sufficiently charged battery while the vehicle is running. In your case you have two options. The easiest is to use a battery charger like the CTEK MULTI US 3300 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse...

  • Using 7-Way Trailer Connector 12-volt Accessory Circuit to Power Boat Winch
  • An electric winch used to pull a boat up on a trailer is designed to be wired directly to a 12-volt battery. The wire that feeds your 7-way trailer connector is too small in gauge to be able to handle the amperage draw of a winch. Attempting to use the 7-way to power the winch will almost certainly lead to blown fuses. Typically, a winch would be connected to an auxiliary battery located on the trailer. The auxiliary battery can be maintained with the 12-volt circuit from the 7-way,...

  • Can a Trailer Connector be Used to Power an Electric Trailer Winch
  • Electric winches should have a direct connection to a battery for power. The wiring in a trailer connector, like a 7-Way, and an adapter like # HM47675, is not a heavy enough gauge to effectively power a winch. Also, the farther away from the power source the winch is, the heavier the wiring will need to be. I recommend using a wiring kit specifically for electric winches like Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, for up to 16.5K Winches, # SW2008. I have included a link to...

  • Need An Electric Winch To Pull Vehicles Up On A 22 Foot Car Hauler
  • The SuperWinch LT2000 Electric Utility Winch, part # 1220210, you have referenced will only have a rated line pull of 2,000 lbs. The rated line pull of 2,000 lbs. will pull a rolling load of 10,050 lbs. up a 6 degree incline, but as the incline increases, the rolling load capacity will decrease. Also, those loads are based on the just one layer of wire wrapped around the drum. Each additional layer of wire (when the winch wire is laid on top of itself) reduces the winchs pulling capacity...

  • Can 7-Way Trailer Connector Accessory Circuit be Used to Power Trailer-Mounted Winch
  • The 12-volt accessory circuit lacks the amperage to power a trailer mounted winch. Your best bet would be to either install a 12-volt deep cycle battery on the trailer, and use the 12-volt accessory circuit to keep that battery maintained, or use a winch wiring kit like part # SW2008 and connect the winch to the vehicle battery. If you use the 12-volt accessory circuit to maintain the trailer-mounted battery, I would recommend installing a battery isolator, like part # TR118665. The...

  • How Does the Superwinch S5500 SR Winch Wire to a Trailer for Operation
  • You would run the Superwinch S5500 SR Winch # SW1455201 to a deep cycle trailer battery, or you can wire it to the tow vehicles battery with the wiring kit part # SW2008 that runs thick gauge wire up to the vehicle battery and has quick-disconnects that will be at the rear of the vehicle. If you were to run it off of a trailer battery you would need to charge the battery with a wall charger like the CTEK part # CTEK56864 as the 12 volt accessory circuit of a 7-way wouldn't carry enough...

  • How To Maintain Trailer-Mounted Winch Battery Using 12-Volt Accessory Feed
  • First, on the towing vehicle, you will need to install a battery isolator, # TR118665. The flow of current will go from the vehicle battery to the isolator. From the isolator it will go along a length of 12 gauge wire, # 12-1-1, to the vehicle side trailer connector via a 30 amp circuit breaker. Next, 12 gauge wire will need to run from the trailer side 7-Way to the positive Trailer battery terminal. If the winch came with a circuit breaker it will need to go between the winch and positive...

  • Electric Winch Recommendations For Race Car Trailer
  • If you are planning on using the winch for a rolling load like a car, the 8,500 winch like part # 2401A could certainly handle the load but may be more winch than what is needed. This winch has a 4.2 hp motor, and 5/16 inch wire rope that is 150 ft long. This winch is typically used on applications like flat bed tow trucks. Mounting plates are normally fabricated for this winch. This winch has a frespooling clutch, and power in and out load. This also has a hand held remote switch. I have...

  • Will Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, # SW2008, fit a 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, # SW2008, is designed to work on a vehicle with a trailer mounted winch. But you could use it if the winch is mounted at the front or rear of the truck, just not both at the same time without an additional kit. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. I have also included a link to our FAQ article that covers different ways to wire an electric winch.

  • Winch Wiring Diagram for a Ford F-250 with 2 Batteries Under the Hood
  • The batteries under the hood of your F-250 should be wired in parallel, providing 12 volt output for additional power and starting ability. If your batteries are wired in series for 24 volt output, you will need to add an additional 12 volt battery to operate the winch. Wiring a winch with the Superwinch Wiring Kit, # SW2008, is accomplished by running the 25 foot long 2 gauge wire with connector from the positive post on one of the batteries to the back of the vehicle and mounting it...

  • Electric Winch Recommendation for Loading Classic Cars On an Enclosed Car Trailer
  • When using an electric winch to pull a rolling load on to a trailer, it is typically recommended that the winch have at least the capacity of the weight of the vehicle. The Superwinch Husky 8 Heavy Duty Recovery Winch, # 2401A, that you referenced may be excessive for your application. This winch was designed for vehicle recovery and often times the load is not rolling. The rolling load capacity of a winch is typically greater than the rated line pull and the rolling load capacity increases...

  • Wiring for Electric Winch at the Front and Rear of a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 Duramax
  • First, you are going to need a couple sets of quick disconnects such as # SW2236. You will need enough 2 to 4 gauge wire to reach from the front of the truck to the batteries and from the rear of the truck to the batteries. Another option is to get a couple of winch wiring kits, # SW2008. The winch power and ground wires will attach to one disconnect and the wiring to the batteries will attach to the mating quick disconnect. Diesel trucks normally have 2 batteries so the isolator...

  • Possible Quick Connect Recommendation for a 12k Badlands Winch
  • While it most likely would work, the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit # SW2008 has never been tested on your Badlands 12,000 winch so I could not say with 100 percent certainty if it would work for you. If your winch can be powered with 2 AWG wire then most likely this kit would be adequate for your winch as this winch is confirmed to work on Superwinch winches up to 16.5k in capacity.

  • Wiring Options for an Electric Winch Powered by an Additional Battery
  • The easiest way to wire the battery for your winch will be to use the 7 way connector on your vehicle if you have one on your 2006 GMC Truck. You can get a 7 way trailer connector like part # A7WCB and use the Jacketed 2 Wire, part # 10-2-1, to connect a wire for the power and a wire for the ground in the connector. You will then run the ground wire, or white wire, to the negative terminal on the secondary battery and run the power lead, black wire, to the positive terminal on the battery....

I was unable to find a winch that had an auto shutoff when the winch senses a trailer door is closed. They did agree it was a great idea. You may have to watch the door and release the remote when using a winch to open and close the door.

  • The CTEK MULTI US 3300 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger # CTEK56158 that you referenced actually will need to plug into a wall outlet to charge your trailer battery. What I would do is run a 10 gauge wire from the 12 volt accessory circuit of your 7-way to the positive post of your trailer battery to provide it with a maintenance charge when it is connected. The only real way to charge the trailer battery with it connected to your tow vehicle would be to run a thick gauge wire from...

You would want to mount a battery on the trailer and use it to power the winch. To provide a maintenance charge to the battery what you could do is replace the 4-Way on the trailer with a 7-Way, such as # H20042, and run the black wire from it to the positive battery terminal. This will keep the battery...

  • Recommended Wire Gauge and Quick Disconnects for 8K Trailer Mounted Winch

I'd recommend going with a 2 AWG wire which is rated for a winch up to 16.5K. We offer a quick disconnect wiring kit that would be exactly what you need, part # SW2008. I'll also link you to a help article that shows a few methods of wiring your winch. I don't think yours was incorrectly wired, but there might be something in there that you find helpful.

This inverter can be hard wired and the proper gauge will depend on how long you plan to run the wires. For example, if you will be running the wires 8 ft round trip, then you will want to use 6 gauge wire. If you will need 9 - 10 ft of wire, then you will need to use 4 gauge wire. If the cables will be running 11 -21 ft round trip, then you will want...

Many times we see the auxiliary battery mounted within the engine compartment if there is space available when you have the winch on the front of your vehicle. If you are planning on using your winch when mounted to your trailer then we often see it mounted to the frame of the trailer, but you could also mount a battery box and battery to the bed of your truck. ...
