    I did read that the Runvas have a braking mech in the gearbox, not inside the spool.

    Yeah, they call it a ratchet system. It's to prevent heat from a traditional drum brake.

    If I showed you and told you my recent experience with them. You wouldn't believe me.
    I won't drag names through mud on here.
    But like I said , I recommend you steer clear.

    Ok.
    I've disconnected everything going to the solenoid, the neg and the red terminal from the winch do its free on any power. Then I connected a battery, neg to neg on winch and positive to red on winch. Got a little spark on contact, but no movement at all. Am I doing this correct??

    While all connected to the external battery it goes from 12.2v - 6.0v. is there not enough juice in the battery to get it moving or is the winch dead??

    I think is safe to say that it's dead, If I have done this right.

    Tried it again, but this time connected to the car battery and engine running, no difference.

    Now if I get a bare winch I run all my existing cables, solenoid and rope everything should fit just a remove and replace yeah....

    EDIT....


    And I also connected a cable (the brown one in the pic) from the red terminal to the yellow one with no difference.

    And of course before I put the bar back on I gave it a go and it worked, not everytime I hit the switch, but it did work and then when it's all put back together, it doesn't work.

    I pretty sure that the motor works, it's just that it doesn't work everytime the switch is pushed

    Is it a wireless controller, or the cable unit? Maybe a wire is loose inside the control box.
