Default winch install question

There is a thread on here that is a couple years old that got me to thinking about this. It was about installing lights onto a cart with a winch for snow plow purposes and the exacts are different, but made me want to ask the question anyway.

Has anyone ever had an issue with a winch and radio or winch and lights being hooked up to a 12 volt acc battery? The problem was he wanted to install a fuse, but the going concern was that when the winch kicks on and pulls 100 amps or so it would blow the lights first. There was no 12 v acc battery in that case, or so it seemed.

I am planning and have everything seperated by switches, but do I need to do anything very specific, or just be careful, put in switches and fuses, and be fine with it? Do I need to put in a winch switch?

Thanks and hope this makes sense.

wire the winch directly to the 12v battery with its own fuse.....add an accessory fuse block in which the lights can be powered from.....

I have the winch to the battery. I use the contactor leads under the dash to tap 12v to my accessory fuse block.
