Has anyone tried one of these? Check out the videos on utube. I'm just not sure if I want to be the first to buy one around here, I fall for everything. My 8 x 16 is a hard cranking house, this might work but I wonder how many times a battery lasts for.

I don't see the link. I put a cheap electric trailer tongue jack on my shack,. It was 130 cranks to unhitch and get it down to the ice and another 130 to reconnect. Now its just one switch and I can run from either the truck 6 wire plug or off the wheelhouse batteries. Truely worth the $100 for the jack.

I put one of these on my tow-behind RV trailer 7 years ago and its still working fine.

Ah - cable winch - totally different animal. I prefer the hand crank over this - I watched the video.

It works...I made my own socket though. Cut the end off one of my crank handles and welded it to a 1/2 drive socket. Picked up an adapter to go to a drill. Using a good 1/2 drill is key. I've raised my 17' RV Edition as many as 3 times on a charge and I use an older craftsman 19.2 volt.

It doesn't tear up the drill or chuck? Is that an impact or regular drill? Sure seems like a lot of torque is needed. It works though? You think a regular 18 volt cordless will work? Actually anyone with a generator could plug in a corded drill.

I run my drill on the lowest gear and go slow. Regular 1/2 cordless drill. I should also mention that I use the top crank which is geared for easier cranking. An 18 volt would work fine.

It works Awesome would not leave home without it! I have a 20' tandem axel Ice Castle and I use a 20V DeWalt drill. Cranks up and down no problem. Most I have done on one charge is 3x up and down but the battery still had life. I bought mine at http://easycrankwinchsocket.com/

I am thinking I need to buy that, I have the 8x20 toyhauler and some days it is a bear to operate. For those that have it how is it on the ice when your house has been banked in for a few days?
