Re: Winch Mount and bumper

jcarone,

Thank you for doing all this and keeping us up to date. Im pretty excited to get this deal.

Could you perchance post a video of it in operation? Doesn't have to be pulling you out of something. Im just curious about how you'd have to turn it on - or does the wireless remote not require you to turn it on via the unit either? I've never dealt with a winch before.

Thank you.

I will see if I can video it when I get back in town. The wireless isn't working right now, so it is plugged in via a wired remote (with a 12 foot lead on it). Right now, mine clutch is engaged all the time, and if I want to back it out, I have to do that under power.

Oh - and most winches don't require you to "turn them on" - you just trigger it based on however you have your remote setup.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

Some constructive criticisem for rockey road, forget all that under promiss BS that people are suggesting, keep your aggressive schedules, and keep am email list of all interested parties.

If schedule slips which it obviously did, send a polite email saying, sorry but the new availability date is X/X/X

As long as the customers feel respected they will come back - the product looks cool and they have good feedback so far, so let's let them deliver ......

Been out of town for a few days. I got an email last week that one of the key players in getting this to market had an unexpected death in the family, and was tied up with that. They very much understand the desire for the part, and are going through it as fast as they can. They were wrapping up shipping info, as well as install instructions, and planning to get it on the website for pre order as soon as they can. The final pricing is one of the big hold ups, so pre orders are hard until that gets completed.

Re: Winch Mount and bumper

I got an email from RRO on Friday...

"Its been too crazy here at Rocky Road to get these things 'online'. I thought we could rush ahead and get them going, but we've had alot of guys out here which leaves everyone else scrambling. So still have to chip away at the project slowly with fragments of time instead of being able to get it all up and running. Soon though... soon!"

I know that they are expanding their manufacturing facility and capacity. Hopefully that will help in the mid to long term, but in the short term may be hindering getting this to market.
