Which wireless remote is compatible with this winch? will the wirless remote also have an LED indicator to feedback to the user on the temp. of the winch motor just like on the wired remote?

Asked by NP from on

The Warn Wireless Control System, which you can find here [], is compatible with this Warn 16.5ti Thermometric Self-Recovery Winch. It will have an LED indicator to let you know when the winch is in use, but it does not have an LED indicator to give you feedback regarding temperature. Temperature feedback is only available with the included wired winch at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks!

In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
