Well it has been a couple years since my last post on this subject. I did not replace the 12vdc winch motor back then. It looked ugly but still worked. A couple days ago it would only lift my 700lb dinghy half way up but not over my rail. I noticed that my ground cable had been pinched and partially severed. I replaced it, re-oriented it and thought it good. It only lifted the dinghy another foot higher. I checked my wiring down below and everything looks great. I do have two solenoids down there. I wonder if they are the problem. They also work my windlass as both the windlass and the davit are on the same heavy breaker. My next thought was to try to get the Rule T33 reconditioned at a motor shop. The shop I called intimated that if the motor still goes up and down but has lost some power, there is more likely an incoming volts/amps issue. Any advice for me out there?
