I'm installing a superwinch terra 35 on my 2016 outlander L

Customer Question

I'm installing a superwinch terra 35 on my 2016 outlander L max 570 and the instructions say to splice red wires from the rocker switch and remote socket to the key controlled positive (+) wire of the ignition switch.
Problem is there is a red wire with a blue stripe, and a red wire with a black stripe on the ignition switch. Don't really know where to go from here.
Thank you in advance for any help.

red/gray (blue?) stripe should be hot all the time. this is the ignition feed from the battery.

connect your winch switch to the switched hot (only hot when ignition switch is ON).
