Cool chevy HD tow package ?

I have a 2002 chevy silverado with the heavy duty tow package and would like to install a powerwinch on the trailer for my boat,the outlet by the back bumper has 12v and (this is my question) and I think it has a 30amp fuse,my winch only draws 30amp so I should be good to go.what do you guys think.Thanks in advance mike

suggest reading any instructions that come with the winch per wiring size and fuse size as i highly doubt the wiring going to your rear connector is of adequate size.
will probably require heavier guage wire ran from bumper to battery and with some form of fuse in the circuit such as a fusible link or large maxi fuse that would be capable of handling the amperage to run the winch.

The winch comes with a 30amp fuse so it shouldn't draw more than that,the fuse in the fuse panel on the truck is 30amps so I guess the wiring should be able to handle 30amps,If it starts smoking I''ll know what to do.
