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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
