Benefits of a Wireless Winch Remote

Wireless winch remotes offer a variety of benefits for any electric winch owner. Here are a few benefits of wireless winch remotes you should consider when buying a new remote for your winch:

Wireless Winch Remotes Keep You Safe

A wireless winch remote makes winching safer. For starters, there isn’t a corded remote that could be an obstacle during your pull. With a 50-foot wireless remote radius, you can control your winch from a safe distance. The Mile Marker Plug & Play wireless remote is a weatherproof, Shock-Resistant Transmitter with LED Feedback – no bad weather can stop you.

Wireless Winch Remotes Are Easy to Install

A wireless winch remote can be installed in no time. All Mile Marker wireless winch remotes come already paired to the control box from the factory. The only thing you need to do is plug the control box into your solenoid box, as you would a wired remote control. From there, power the control box on and as soon as you see the red light, it’s ready to go. When you are ready to winch, press the OUT button for 1 to 3 seconds, until the round button on the back of the control box begins to flash. In seconds, your winch will start to unspool. 

Wireless Winch Remotes Work from The Comfort of Your Cab

Whether the weather is bad, or you are winching on your own, wireless winch remotes are a useful tool to be able to winch from the comfort of your vehicle’s cab or driver’s seat. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires to get your winch remote working from inside your vehicle.

Wireless Winch Remotes Are Easy to Troubleshoot

When a wired winch remote doesn’t work, the solutions can be complicated. For example, physical connections may have corroded or become damaged. However, with a wireless winch remote, the fix to most issues is an easy one— plug it in! Most problems with a wireless winch remote can be quickly solved by charging the remote. The Mile Marker Plug and Play wireless winch remote’s non-removable, rechargeable Li-ion battery is easily charged through USB. Additionally, the remote’s power management chip prevents overcharging.


What’s stopping you from picking up a Plug & Play wireless remote for your winch? It’s easy to install, easy to use and makes winching even easier.
