Winch won't go out

I just installed a new smittybilt XRC 8k winch. The winch will go IN and free spool but will not go OUT no clicking, the light will come on the remote but nothing moves. Is there something I am missing or is something wrong with the winch?

Have to ask

Have you double checked all of your wires?

Yeah, I mean winch will go in but won't winch out so things are connected and getting power just won't go out.

Solenoid has multiple wires so thought there may be an "out" that was lose.

Not sure what all those wires are.
