    Neither, in cab. I can hear the solenoid clicking even when the motor isn't moving

    Maybe the solenoid contacts have carbon on them, or have been misshapen by excessive heat.

    @jaysee, its only on the wrong terminal when you let the smoke out! Looks like just another small problem to resolve, good luck.

    If you are satisfied that it is the contactor/solenoid, I have this Warn one that you can have if it is suitable. It is out of a 10,000lb unit that the gears failed after only a couple of minor uses but a lot of water ingress into the winch (but not the controller).Warn contactor.JPG

    I have the 13XP premium which are low in stock everywhere from what I understand. Great bit of kit.
    But 11 should suffice too .
    Look at the specs on the website and make a call from there.

    If you are going to get rid of your current winch, and control gear, maybe at a meet up, I can grab it off you for a price and have a go repairing it. I've wanted to tear down a Runva to see how different it is from my Aldi unit.

    I sent runva an email asking if the 13xp would fit with my Raslarr bar.

    Thank you for getting in touch.



    I don’t think the 13XP Premium will fit unfortunately. The 11XP Premium will however fit perfectly and a great option for a GU patrol.

    Is it correct that you the winch capacity should be double the weight of the car?

    I'll probably keep the solenoid as a spare, I didn't think that there's anything wrong with it and the rope as it's only been used to pull out a couple of yaccas, but you're welcome to the winch for nothing.

    I know a few years back the ALDI winch was the same as the Ironman. My current one is a t-max winch the runva is what I'm going to replace it with.
