How hard is the powerwinch replacement?

I need to replace the powerwinch on a 2008 RockwoodHW256. The paper work says it came with a p55000. How hard is it to swap it out and get adjusted back?

Any recommendations on where to order a new one?

The winch was updated in 2016 to Model P55012. Went from a worm gear to a better style. Here is link to PDF of manual. Explains mounting, adjustment etc. https://www.carefreeofcolorado.com/d...nch-Manual.pdf

Do a Google search for Carefree P55012 and you will find several sources for the winch assembly.
