12 Volt Winch


I have hooked up a 12 volt winch to my 4x4 atv, for my plow, and want to install a n.c. limit switch in the "up" circuit, to prevent my plow from smacking into under belly of atv. I know it will work, and kill power when limit switch is opened, but is there something in limit switch itself, to allow constant voltage to "down" side of circuit, so that pressing down button will allow plow to drop. Hope this doesn't sound like a lot of rambling!

If your feed is paralled into your push buttons, the limit switch should just be breaking the "up" lead and not affect the down.
