    I have an rep 8000 and i have no idea how to hook it up, i have 2 soleniods that are attached to each other on a plate. Now what?


    They have 2 terminals on the top of each and one on the side looks like for teh remote?

    Any good refs for this stuff? Pics? I have been looking but with no success.

    Thanks.

    There should be 4 posts on each solenoid. If there are I can draw you up a schematic of how to wire this up. Are there any jumpers on the solenoids. Like a bar that goes from one solenoid post to the other?

    OK, its been a while since I had to wire one of these up.

    Two of the battery studs should be jumpered together with the hot side of the triggering field. This way you only have to run one cable to the battery posts to power the solenoids and the winch in both directions. It shouldn't really matter which poles you hook what to on the solenoids as long as the battery and Fields are not put on the poles that are for the triggering field. If somebody out there has an old 8274 or other dual remote solenoid setup check me out on this.

    When I put power to one solenoid it powers in! good.


    When i put power to the other... it powers in...

    not good?

    what do i do?

    switch the hook ups on the winch?

    switch terminals on one solenoid? Its the same as the pic!
