Here's my new hoist installed. Just so happens my 3/4" ratchet wrench that came with my BAL xchocks works perfectly. I can operate the hoist from above between the propane tanks and the trailer.

can't tell from the pic, did you have to drill holes or is it straight bolt on? looks like good access tho.

Yes, drilled two holes to mount it. You can see the bolt head of one of the mount bolts. The other is hidden behind the wrench. There are a few options for mounting. I did what the manufacturer calls a "front mount". There's also a top mount and a way to mount it horizontally. Also a few different options for the drive actuator. I went with the hex nut, but there's also a drive tube and a cross-pin. You can see some of the options in the photos at this link: Spare Tire Hoist for Recreational Vehicles, Motorhome, Travel Trailer, RV by TECA

If you can pick what you're getting @ the wreckers, yes that's a good source.

I think I'd avoid anything off a truck 3 or more years old though, especially in the snowbelt where salt is used on the roads..

TECA 500-100N RV winch works great

I mounted mine onto the propane tank holder and use a Makita impact wrench with a 3/4 socket (same one I use for the stabilizers) to run it up and down. tools/materials: #14 x 3/4 in self tapping screws, 3/8 socket, drill with socket drive shaft.
1) remove propane tank cover and tanks
2) reroute propane hose over the top of the rails holding battery box
3) relocate breakaway switch to outside of trailer tongue (wires over top)
4) center hitch under propane tank mount with nut facing battery box and edge flush with back of propane mount (a C clamp helps if you are alone) **Critical that you get it flush with back of mount or tire will rub on the tongue jack!
5) run two screws up through mounting holes on winch into propane rack
6) Winch tire up
7) zip tie battery cables out of the way
8) replace propane tanks and cover. Winch is protected from weather by the cover
