Powerwinch RC30Forth up in our review is another Powerwinch, but this time the Powerwinch RC30.  This is another solid choice for anyone looking for a new 12-volt electric boat trailer winch, and it has some rave reviews by users on Amazon.

As with all winches, different load conditions will affect the Powerwinch RC30 wireless winches performance. The line pull required for a specific application depends on the weight of the load, the condition of the trailer rollers and the degree of incline of the loading ramp.  So a bit of common sense needs to be applied and you always need to think before each use, to make sure you do not go beyond its capabilities.

More Details“This unit will meet your needs. I have a 28 foot Grady White and even when fully loaded the Powerwinch RC30 wireless winch has more than enough power to move my boat the last 2 feet onto my bunk trailer.”

“The winch attached to the trailer with minimum effort. The instructions are clear, and when I misplaced my manual, I was able to download instructions online. The wire from the car to the winch is of good quality although it would be a good option to be able to buy an extra long cable. I use the winch in double mode for my 24 ft, 4300 lb boat. No stress. Easy on my back. The Powerwinch RC30 wireless winch is a good product!!”
