Consider what would happen if you were in an accident and the heavy power cable running from your battery to your winch was pinched between your bull-bar and your chassis? The battery would essentially short circuit and get extremely hot. The insulation would likely melt from the cable and a fire could start. For this reason, it is always recommended to install your winch with a isolation switch or a fuse in the main power circuit.

A fuse has some advantages over isolation switches in that you do not need to exit your vehicle and pop the bonnet to align power to your winch. The fuse also protects your vehicle in the unlikely scenario where the winch motor short circuits during operation. A fuse has some disadvantages over an isolation switch in that your winch is always powered meaning it's accessible for tampering when your vehicles unattended. Additionally, if a fuse does pop, it needs to be replaced as opposed to simply reset. In an ideal world, users will install a fuse and a isolation switch to protect your winch and vehicle from the worst case scenarios considered possible.
