This may help (or maybe not):
The Black wire is the ground wire, and the other two are considered Hot wires, and their
order does not matter - they carry 240 Volts AC.
So, once you identify which terminal on the solenoid is ground, connect Black to it, then just hook up the remaining two Hot wires in any order.

I have a 14 volt
Not only do you need a 12 volt supply (13.8V) to operate this winch, but you also need a.) wire large enough to carry the electrical load, and b.) a power source that has the necessary current (amps) to turn the motor.
If you have wires that are too small, they will heat up and not be able to deliver the current (amps) required by the motor. If your power source is to small - it can not supply the current required. The result of either conditions is "voltage drop". This can be explained the same way your car needs a 12 volt car battery to start. If that car battery was dead, you couldn't connect eight "D" cell batteries (8 x 1.5volts = 12 volts) together and attach to the car's battery cables and expect it to start. This is because the amount of current available in the car battery is hundreds of time greater than eight "D" cell batteries - even though when the D cells are connected in series - both systems deliver 12 volts.
If neither of the above conditions is present, then there could be an electrical problem with the drive motor itself. This could be a shorted / melted winding or other electrical connection that is not right, even if the drum spins freely.

Wiring up super winch
I am wiring a Superwinch 4500 to my Yamaha Rhino.
Problem the two red wires go to the key switch.
Do they just splice into the 12 wire ?

Repair broken power cord
I have a 50-ft power cord for my electric pole saw. In an accident, the saw cut the power cord. It's long cable and I want to save it. My method keeps the cable lean and retain it's strength. It's not water-proof, but I never use a pole saw in a rainy day.
