The WARNing Signs

I may be paranoid but the winch on the front of my machine is not what I remember.
I’ve been plowing for a few years now with it, more recently I’ve been plowing 5-10 houses out every snowfall and it seems to be giving up.
The machine is an 07 and I assume the winch is too, a WARN RT2500 It seems to be winding in slower recently and it doesn’t seem to have as much power as it used to, it winds out just as fast as usual, it’s not a battery issue it’s strong. Just wondering if this is maybe a common issue and I just need to take it apart and service it or if it sounds like it’s on it’s way out. The winch hardly gets any use all summer other than the occasional time I get stuck, never gets submerged, hardly even gets splashed.
