Hi All, I was camping with friends this past weekend who are new to camping. They purchased a 2012 or 2013 Palamino with an electric winch system. Long story short, the cable bound up in the winch and he continued to pull which broke the cable spool and bent the winch plate. He is not mechanically inclined so he has asked me to help with the repair. I priced a replacement winch which was 400$-500$, this seems extremely high to me for a 1200lb winch. I had an old 1500lb winch off of a four wheeler that I offered up, but the more I think about it I don't think this is the right option. If something screws up and they are camping they have no manual way to raise and lower the roof. I have been looking around and found this winch https://www.amazon.ca/Master-Lock-2...=en-CA&tag=googcana-20&ref=pd_sl_5gyfkl5uxd_e It has more than enough pulling power, plus a manual override. Mounting may take a bit of thinking about, but I think its a better option. I have suggested that they just convert to a manual winch, but this seems to offer the best of both worlds. Just looking for input or other ideas, suggestions from anyone with any experience with a similar issue. I certainly want to offer them the best most cost effective advice. Any help is appreciated.
