Yea, after looking at it, I think what blew up was a capacitor.

Were you switching directions quickly when it happened?  You MUST let the motor come to a complete stop before you change direction.  Otherwise you get a transient spike that pops the controller.  You might be able to add an inductor to the lines going to the motor to suppress the spikes somewhat.  I fried my controller for my power drive doing that.  You could make it fool proof by adding one of your one-shot relays into the power circuit.  Somehow it would need to break the power for 1 or 2 seconds when you move the direction switch from one setting to off.

Thank you for the suggestion. I dont know if that was the case, but it very well could have been. My winch has a brake and it does seem to stop very quickly, but I may have tried to reverse faster than it engaged.

Hi all, 
I finally finished the system and have it installed. 
A few of you asked for a video so here goes... Its the first video I ever made and posted on Youtube.

Not sure if I'm doing this right...
