Welp. That settles it. I’m for sure buying a Warn lol
Yep I should have just bit the bullet once. Although I like the stealth, I've lost all confidence in it now that it will be there when I need it again.

I agree. I can deal with a recall but when the manufacturer refuses to respond to e-mails I no longer trust them. I tried the customer service chat today. He said he is "not qualified to talk about the recall and that I need to e-mail the recall team". I told him that I have emailed them several times over the last two weeks and he said "yeah they are very busy".

I'm just going to install a $5.00 battery cutoff switch in series with the positive cable and forget about it.

I would too but my wireless function also does not work.
Hmm, I have only used my wired remote. Guess I had better go out and check if it ever gets above 0 C here in the Pine Tree State

Yeah definitely check it out. That's how I initially found out there was a recall on the winch. Apparently the cpu in the winch's that are affected also have an issue with the wireless receiver also.

Yep I see that. I bought mine back in April, but don't feel like dropping another $650 on a winch unless I get compensated to return this fiasco. Lol

Could you simply unhook the positive wire going from winch to battery?
Dat's what I immediately did after having visions of the winch unspooling the wire rope as I unknowingly drove down the freeway.
