I'm strapped for room in the control box for our winches. I was thinking of adding some extra features to our winches but don't have the room inside the winch-mounted control box. I know The ON-OFF buttons can't be mounted in a power cord inline box. Is there a problem with adding a fuse in the inline box? How about a current monitor and triac to shut down the winch if overloaded? And finally, how about a variable speed pot (and its zero-cross detect and triac)?
