A local pawn shop has this Ramsey REP8000 for $375. It's mounted to a plate which is mounted to a hitch. I don't know jack about winches so what should I look/watch out for? The cable looks OK, it looks like it might be wound up wrong though. It has a black box to the side of it that takes a plug. I'm assuming that this is for the controls. The black/red cables look in good shape, just need the other end of the cable to attach to power source though. They said that they opened the box to the side up to run power to it for a check. The guy said it worked just fine but I want to research it before I buy it. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
