I mount mine in the (hehe) dry tool box, i attach it to the side of the box, and run the wires in from the top of the box with some silly cone so it doesnt leak (hehe) sorry every time i think of that tool box i have to laugh, but seriously i think it is the best place for it.
I have a buddy that mounted his contactor on the outside of the dry box and that is where the instructions said to mount it. But is the contactor water proof. Should i do anything to it to make it better.
they are supposed to be waterproof, I have taken a couple apart that have failed and it was due to water intrusion, best way to keep water out of it, is to keep the water off of it. **** i have even been debating mounting my winch on top of my rack to keep the crap out of it, any one else done this?
I have mine mounted in the dry box as well. If you are taking your ATV swimming, it will get water in there, but basic mud-riding, there won't be a problem. Just run a bead of silicone all around the seams, press it in with your finger, let it dry, do it again, let it dry, and then, for extra security, slap some grease on the top of it to keep the terminals from corroding. You may have problems eventually, as with any electrical device that goes in the water, but you bought the best winch as far as I am concerned!!
No prob. No just took the battery hold down brace so it would be easier to put screws in. I could only get 2 bottom screws in, because the ones in top would poke out of plastic at the rear of the seat, u will see when u get it lined up. But like i said earlier, i have had it like that for a year or so, & no problems so far.
