    A few questions can I hook up a wireless remote to current super winch? Or any ideas on other switches besides big window switch? If I got a cheap harbor freight winch could I put wireless on that?

    I installed this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007OTGY8C this year. going to be the first time using it today (first snowstorm)

    working great so far.

    only downside is it is hard to control small motion. press the wireless remote, it goes pretty far on each press. press too much, the drum will slip.

    If you're not married to the wireless idea and just don't like that switch, a recent thread discussed at least one alternative switch. I think it's the one asking about reinstating the snowbear forum.
