Got a winch story for you guys. Not warranty related but is about ironman. A mate brought a new Holden colarado (wagon) from Holden Cranbourne and got the 4x4 extras thrown in from Cranbourne ironman, including winch bullbar lift etc etc. also brand new BFG 32 inch ATs So anyways. We're away on our boys weekend upto wood wood a few weeks back. The joint flooded. 300mm of water pretty much as soon as you hit the state Forrest. So being foolish Idoits full of a beers at 6pm my mate with the Holden and another mate with a brand new ranger (picked up the night before, also with the works installed by Cranbourne iron man and BFG 33inch mts) and myself (no winch, no lift. Standard 29inch ATs) go for a explore through this water. Dumb idea enough so we turned around about a 1k in but the boys were being clowns and got stuck &$#@##$ around. Lucky for me I could turn around no worries and headed straight back to leave them to &@#$ around. So anyways they're both winching off each other, trees etc getting themselves to solid tracks to get out. Few times of this, and The ranger then gets stuck in a deep rut and so the colarado is winching the ranger out. It's a tough recovery so he's winding it in and throws it in reverse. Within seconds the Holden loses power to all accessories and the motor. Anyways we get the ranger out wait till morning and tow the colarado out. Some tinking and what not finally gets towed down to Holden swan hill. Blah blah blah normal bull shit. 24 hours later on the Friday heading into cup weekend at 3pm, Holden discover that iron man have wired the winch through accessories fuse box instead of an inline fuse direct to the battery. Cooked the whole box and fuses and Sure enough being a wagon they can't get a part down to Swan hill from Melbourne until Wednesday and installed Thursday (typically all the boys pck up and leave on the Tuesday). Holden invoices him $500 for labour and parts etc, would cost him two days wages, and two nights extra accommodation to stay in Swan hill plus meals. Waiting to meet up with him again this weekend to hear the story of what the reaction was of iron man when he slapped the invoices on bench. Hope this makes sense. Bloody hard writing this much on an iPhone.
