Trim doesn't work?

3 posts in this topic

I haven't done all that much diggin into the issue yet but last weekend my foot trim and front trim switch went out. I have a 75 4 stroke merc and a 1775 lund (tiller model). The trim switch by the key works as does the one on the side of the motor. Just wondering where a fuse may be for this as so far I can't seem to find one. I assume that these are wired into my rear/starting battery. Any help in narrowing my search down would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

WW

There is no connection to your starting battery for this, nor is there a fuse for it.

What likely happened is the connection between the motor and the boat is loose or lost. What you'll want to do is to either look under the hood and trace the three wires that connect to the red, green and blue wires on the rh side of your motor and run out of your motor to your boat until you find where the foot trim and front trim switch are spliced in.

Otherwise, start at your foot trim and follow the wires back. Your weak link will be at the splice.

Remember - red is constant power, blue is up and green is down.

Do as M.M. says or also check the wiring harness where it leaves the remote control. many times they splice them right out of the remote, some go toward bow and some to back into harness.

Always look for Red (+), Blue (UP), or Green (DOWN) wires.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
