I wonder if your battery is getting weak or the winch is drawing it down too far. Possibly you could fit a bigger battery. I was able to put a full size automotive Yellow Top on my 700 Diesel, helps a lot, still at night with all the lights on including LED's in about an hour, the lights will start to flicker from low voltage. I have a huge 5000 lb winch (way overkill). Even with a decent sized alternator, it can't keep up. I suspect the stator on your 300, just can't keep up. You could instal a volt meter or buy a smaller winch, maybe a 1500 will draw less juice. A bigger battery, fully charged should give you a longer running time. Lastly, you can possibly, change how you plow to use winch less?
