I did something similar with my 3000 pound winch. Built some 4 gauge booster cables with smaller clamps, intending to use them for boosting garden tractors and such, not really for regular vehicles. These cables are long enough to reach a trailer from the battery on my pickup. After getting the winch I got three of the Anderson connectors and cut the cables about a foot from one end and made a "splice" with two of the connectors. I put the other one on the wires coming from the winch. I can now plug a short run if I have a battery close by, or plug the long part on for using the truck battery. I did it this way so it's not dedicated to just one vehicle. I fixed a plate on the winch with a hole to hook over a ball installed on the top of my trailer tongues. I have four different ones that I need to pull something up onto from time to time. My cables are still useable for the original purpose if needed.
I can use the winch on just about any trailer with just about any vehicle doing it this way. Or, I can use it from a hitch on the vehicle if I'm doing something besides loading a trailer. When not in use it stays in a box in my shop with the extra cables, etc.
