Does this Runva winch include everything I need for installation?
Unless you're purchasing a specific part, or accessory, Runva winches come in packs ready for installation. This will typically include everything you require for a standard installation to get up and running (leads, bolts, control box, remotes, cable etc). This also includes setup instructions and manual.
Does the Runva warranty cover me for water damage?
Yes. The Runva warranty explicitly states: "Our warranty covers your winch against ingress of these elements under normal use. We do exclude the use of high pressure jets on the winch, please do not waterblast your winch.”
I have an ARB Bull Bar, will my winch fit?
Installing a Runva winch into an ARB bull bar usually
requires an offset fairlead. This is to ensure the rope can travel through the bar smoothly and without getting damaged. Click here to view the Runva Offset Fairlead
It's also recommended that you check the weight rating of your bar and vehicle to ensure the winch weight doesn't exceed the bars weight requirement.
How do I know if the winch will fit my vehicle?
While Runva’s winches are built to global standards and should fit 99% of winch compatible bull bars on the market. Please check the specifications of the winch, and compare with your vehicle and bar to confirm it will fit. This includes weight rating and mounting bolt pattern. Most of the winches include a blueprint diagram with the winches measurements.
What’s the difference between the Runva 11XP Winch and the 11XP Premium?
The 11XP Premium is the upgraded version of the original Runva 11XP model.
- The 11XP Premium includes a new gearbox with integrated ratchet braking system.
The 11XP Premium is also entirely IP67 rated (the whole winch), where previously the original 11XP had only the motor IP67 rated.
- The 11XP Premium draws slightly less current from your battery at higher line pulls (see specs).
- The 11XP Premium also comes with a shackle thimble where the original included a clevis style safety hook.
What's the difference between the Runva 11XP Premium and the 11XP Premium TF models?
The only difference between the Premium and the TF is the built in control box on the TF model. The solenoid itself is identical it is only the cover itself that is larger. If installing on a winch bar you need to use the 11XP Premium (not the TF).
What does the IP67 rating of a winch mean?
The IP rating of a winch (or any item really) is a technical term that indicates how water resistant the winch is. Without going into great detail an IP67 rating means the item is waterproof up to 1m below the surface and entirely sealed from dust and dirt. An IP66 rating means it’s resistant to heavy showers or spraying and entirely sealed from dust and dirt. Due to the nature of a winch and the fact that it’s very purpose is to get dirty and most likely wet, always look for a high IP rating, generally IP66 and above is good.
What battery do I need to run my winch?
The minimum battery size to run a 4x4 electric winch from is a 650CCA. A poor power supply could prevent your winch from working and could also cause damage to the winch motor.
How often do I need to service my Runva winch?
