Customer Question

Just purchased a 30 HP 4-stroke DF30A with electric start and power tilt/trim. Set it on transom, connected to fully charged battery, tilt/trim won't work. The manual doesn't state that I need to release the tilt lock lever or remove any retaining bolts/wires placed for shipment. What next?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: Not at this time.

Does the tilt motor work? Or is there no noise from the motor?
