One trim tab stopped working; I verified it wasn't the connections in the line. A mechanic doing otehr work said he checked it and it was a bad switch. Installed a new switch and control pad, same problem one works and one doesn't.
However when first I hit the "broken" side's button I got a second of sound--then nothing, like before. Normally I'd think fuse, but one fuse controls it all.
I get power to the wire to the broken controller when I hit "up" but not "down." That in itself is wierd but I don't know how reversible motors work.
So I wasted $100 on parts, removed a good switch rig, cut and spliced wires and spent an hour of time on bad advice. Before I go buy an actuator, does anyone know how, and if it's worth it, to take it apart?
Oh, to add to the PITA, the boat stays in the water and this tab is surrounded by the swim ladder. So if I have to get the trailer out of storage and pull it up, I can but owuld rather not if there's a fix.
Monday i yell at the mechanic and politely inquire of the Lenco help line.
