You don’t see many of them anymore, but the quick way to tell if a winch has power-in and power-out is to look at the motor. If it has three wires going into the motor, it has both power-in and power-out. Only one or two wires, and it only pulls in. If it has three wires and it stops pulling in, you can sometimes fix it by going under the hood.
