can a 2,000lb winch work on 7 pin trailer connector.

Got a 2k lb winch on black friday.
Would like to use it to drag things up ramps in the truck bed.
Will a 7pin trailer connector handle it?
and if so which pins do I connect it too.

The 7 pin plug will not provide enough current to power the winch. If you ad a battery in the bed, and use the 7 pin to recharge it, that's another story (Good idea!). As for using it to drag things, what are we talking about? 4 wheelers? Yes. Cars? Probably IF all 4 tires hold air and they roll properly.

Na just heavy items I cant deadlift myself. I have a camper shell so I cant use a ramp and a dolly.
For instance, my fridge is SS french door that weights 580lbs. I about killed myself moving that thing up 6 stairs to my front door. When I move I dont want to have to dolly that in the truck. Family will help move but most that are young enough to lift heavy objects have knee or back problems.

So im one of those guys with a wheeled cooler cause i aint got nobody to help me.
