Warn wireless winch control

I picked up a warn wireless remote winch controller from bfrazier. Thanks buddy.
I wanted to help the next guy who wants to run this type of controller but on any winch they want rather than be stuck with one brand. I use a Runva winch made in Canada that was referred to me by awesome bill. Thanks buddy.
Unfortunately the warn wireless kit is a 6 pin, plug and play for warn winches only.
My Runva uses a 3 pin controller so I had to adapt this wireless module to my solenoid pack.
First I needed to know what wire colors went where.
RED= 12v positive
BLACK= Ground
BROWN= Grounded by the module both winch in or out. A protection measure by warn to prevent both solenoids from activating at the same time.
GREEN= Winch out
TAN= Winch in
WHITE= Discard. Terminated further up the harness.
For a 3 pin setup you need to combine the black and brown leads. Cool winches with smart operators don't need a safety circuit. Lol

I disassembled my original winch remote to look at wire color so I could be sure of where my new harness would connect to the solenoid pack. ImageUploadedByAG Free1382757705.410899.jpg
I then hard wired my modified harness directly to the solenoid pack so if in an emergency I lost my remote, batteries were dead or something didn't work I can still use my factory winch remote like normal.

The black harness conduit with the white zip tie is running under the solenoid pack cover.

Hope this helps anyone who wants to do the same. I never could find a wiring diagram online so I figured it out on my own.
