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 was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
