I have the newer winch. It decided to start by itself while the camper was in storage and tried to raise the roof while latched down. The latches won. The winch bent the mounting plate, destroyed the winch and broke the cable. I don't know why the breaker did not trip. No apparent reason for the winch to turn itself on.
