Ran truck battery power (+ and -) to plug at rear bumper using welding cable in poly sleeving. Plug winch or dump trailer into this using mating plug. No extra batteries to keep up with, and idling truck while using power eases battery load. Made a set of jumper cables that uses same rear plug for extra reach when needed. Also installed dis-connect under hood to kill power line to rear when not used. Worked good for about 8 years now.

Great minds think alike! I must have still been typing when you hit send! What did you use for cable connections? Those flat Anderson connectors that are kind of the standard are nice but a bit spendy.

Hi Chris, also noted the near simultaneous reply time and suggestion offered, not sure it relates to a great mind on my end though, more like self preservation! I used forklift battery style connectors (Anderson)? where both halves are the same, believe it was mcmastercarr p/n 7043K8 and 2/0 cable. IIRC they were only $11.00/pair when I bought. Bit the bullet and put this fix on 2 trucks and 2 trailers-after I had come-alonged a 5k# dead crawler onto a trailer at a 4th of July show in 85+ degree wx. Decided it was cheaper than a heart attack! LOL.
