Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Which engine/drive system do you have on the boat? Is it a Mercruiser or Volvo? Do you have any kind of model information of your sterndrive setup?
Next, when you say the trim is not working. When you hit the button is the trim motor making noise but there is no lift from the sterndrive? Or is the trim motor not making any noise?
Hi Adam, which model is your sterndrive? Once I know what model sterndrive you have, I will know which trim system you have. (as there are many different types)
When you hit trim up you do hear a click, correct? If yes, are you also hearing a whirring noise, or hearing the trim motor itself run?
Got it. You could have a bad trim relay. What I would do in the shop is replace both trim relays (they operate as a pair) and retest. That will usually get it up and going again.
I think that should do it. I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
Hello, just checking in. Any progress?
