Wife bought me a harbor freight 12k lb winch for father’s day. I feel like I’m moving up now after only ever used come a longs for dead cars. I’ve seen winches mounted in boxes on the tongue of trailers and some out in the open. I don’t use my trailer a lot so it sits outside in the backyard. I can see pros and cons to covered vs out in the open but no real life experience. Anybody have regrets of one way or the other?
