PB400 Winch Surges

We are having a continuing issue with our 400 winch. While the winch is in working mode, there are pretty constant wild fluctuations in the tonnage meter. You can definitely feel changes in the winch pull and the mechanics went through wiring and gauge to eliminate any issues there. It is also very easy to "outrun" the rope on uphill passes which doesn't happen on the other winches. Any ideas based on similar problems with good results?
