  • Steering Wheel Trim Buttons

    Can you tell me if the 2002 Tracker Pro 18 is pre wired near the console or control box with aplug for the steering wheel tilt/trim switch that I want to add to my boat? The switch I purchasedhas a plug on the end of the coiled cord.

    I'm a little confused1) Did you buy the lever type trim switches that mount like a turn signal in a car?2) Where is your current trim switch locatedThe lever type is meant to splice into the wiring of your existing switch. You just match up the colors.

      Thanks for your response Spencer. The trim switch I purchased is one that mounts on the spoke of the steering wheel. My boat already has a switch mounted on the control box , as well as a switch on the motor and on the bow. I had a pontoon turn in front of me while I was trimmed out and couldn't turn loose of the wheel due to riding on the side of a wake. I decided then to put the steering wheel switch on so I can trim down or up without moving my hands from the wheel. thanks

        You should be able to simply "T" off the switch in the control box. All of the wires should be color coded to make it straight forward.If you want to make it real easy, Anchor Marine makes a 3-way butt connector you can use.

            Thanks Spencer, I installed the steering wheel trim switch yesterday, and with your information, it was a piece of cake. Once I found the wiring harness at the control box, it was simple, and as you stated, everything was color coded.Thanks to people like you, life is made easier, again, thank you for your input.
