Mercury Power Trim

Could any body tell me if the fluid level should be checked when the engine is in the fully out position or should it be when the engine is dead against the transom?

I would have thought, the engine should be trimmed out fully, otherwise the fluid is under pressure and it come squirting out everywere. I know with all the newer mercs you do it with it trimmed up. The fluid level should be level with the bottom of the filler hole.

It needs to be in the fully up pos.otherwise the fluid will be under pressure,and plug will go for a trip up the drive etc.
