Well, I lost the instruction sheet. On a Mile Maker 9K winch how much current does the hand control handle?? would a 20amp switch be able to handle it? I'm thinking of useing a 3 position switch on/off/on to operate it from the cab.

amps

A 20 amp switch is more than enough, you're only sending enough current to turn on the relay which will pass the heavy current to the winch motor.

switch

It should work, it was only 14g. wire in mine. I just matched up colors and crimped on new connecters at the selenoid terminal. Now you can sit inside or walk around with a leash!!

I used starter switches for my in cab controls, I just wired them from the control box. I got them at from autozone about $8 apeace and the are sealed. They work great for in cab controls.
