I use a wench to drag logs onto an 18 ft trailer to cut up for firewood.

I used light welding lead from the truck battery to the rear where I plug the wench lead into a 50amp stove outlet.

Keep the truck idling and you battery doesn"t die. I don"t use the wench enough to justify a battery that will probably be dead the next time I need it and the welding lead, outlet and connectors cost considerably less than a heavy battery does.

TyWrap the welding leads to the frame and use red electricians tape to identify the hot leg.

The local electrical supply house had welding lead for a good bit less than the welding supply, too.

Keep in mind also that only the hot lead has to be full length. You can ground the connector at any handy point on the frame.
