I see something in the Warn manuals for their winches with synthetic rope that concerns me. They say that you should replace the rope once a year. Sounds a little excessive! Now I do understand that water and sun light can degrade synthetic materials and that steel can hold up better assuming it is not rusting like crazy. Any thoughts on this? Is Warn just being overly cautious? I would like to run synthetic rope, but not at that cost.
Here is the quote from the M8000-s manual
4. Replace your rope every 12
months with only WARN rope, P/N
