I was thinking, since you have to have tail lights on your trailer, maybe some method can be rigged so that you turn your tail lights on, then you have a switch that steals the power from the lights and runs a motor to run the winch up and down. It would be simple electrically, but finding a light weight power winch could be difficult. Any one out there know of such a thing?

Just throwing a cheap option out there. Could you use your trooper winch?

I would think you could use the gas springs. They are cheap and available in most any length and force while small and simple to hook up.
