Noted. I guess I was just a little slow on the uptake.

Another question (I have a million of 'em): If I buy a few extra feet of electic wire, is there any downside to simply coiling the excess up near one of the circuit nodes (breaker switch, contactor or in the bow under the winch itself) instead of cutting to length?

I'm certainly not a physicist but something rings a bell in the back of my brain about current running thru coiled line generating heat and a magnetic field.
