    I installed a Comeup Seal 9.5rs last year. Don't know where my mind was at as I come from somewhat of an electrical background. With that said.. I like a dumb a** did not fuse or install a circuit breaker in the positive from the battery to the winch.

    Going back to rectify this situation.. I searched high and low for a preferable circuit breaker to place inline. Thinking 200 amp.. slow trip would do the job. According to Comeup a 190a that would hold a full load for 30 seconds would be perfect. During my searches I did not find anything that I thought would fit the situation.

    SO I am all ears as to what a good solution or product would be!
