I can see where Rogue Wave is going with that line of thought - when racing with a trim and a lifter, the Opti 200XS needs a big battery to keep the voltage up as if you are operating both it can draw the voltage down on a battery that is too small - my advice would be to operate the tab and the trim together and watch the voltage to see if it drops, this gave all sorts of warning alarms on the race ECU, especially over rev alarms!

What sort of voltage sets off alarms??

To be honest I'm not sure - we knew about the problem and fitted a large battery to allow for two hydraulic pumps doing their best to drag the battery down - I would imagine anything under 12 volts for a moment may cause problems, but a big battery or a decent pair would prevent that.
