    Need some advise. I have lost my port side trim tab.

    Fluid is up, I have taken apart and checked connections for corrosion and everything is good. I have also checked all functions at the trim tab switch with a separate power source, motor in forward, in reverse and both solenoids are working.

    I'm guessing its the cylinder that moves the tab. Does this make sense, or I'm I missing another check?

    Thanks J.

    Possibly that the valve is not shuttling for that side(stuck), could disconnect line and see if you are building pressure on that one or even swap the cylinders from side to side to prove the circuit works.

    Yes it's still on the boat. Lost the use of it. It's a Bennett, and I've done all the checks. Going to swap lines to the starboard side and see what happens.

    If you still can't figure it out, Bennett's customer service is phenomenal. If you want to stay on a public forum, you can post at The Hull Truth where Bennett will quickly respond
