This is also in bench racing. I didnt know the proper place to put it....

I picked up a 18' open car hauler this Feb.

Since then I have purchased a ramsey winch for it Model #REP 5000.

The trailer has electric brakes and breakaway systems are mandatory in MN, so Im going to need a battery of some sort on the trailer itself.

I was thinking a deep cycle battery could be charged from a hot lead from the trailer
plug.
Im not sure what size battery I should get. amp hour rating, group size, etc

Any ideas on setting this up would be appreciated. Thanks, Tony

Deep cycle sounds like the way to go. What's the battery expected to run? Just the winch? (Can't say wench, must be serious.)

Thanks John.

The battery will run only the winch and the breakaway system.

bcice responded to my post in bench racing that he uses a handicap scooter type battery on his and only need to recharge it twice a year. So it sounds like a small deep cycle might do the trick.

I dont plan on using the winch that often.
For the most part its there in case I break something and cant drive the car onto the trailer.
