Optimax Trim

Out on Sunday and although the engine run sweetly, the smartcraft gauages kept flickering with the trim angle and even when fully trimed in, showed an angle of 14 -17 degrees!

Any ideas for quick fix or is this a dealer issue?

Regards
Steve

The trim sender has probably bust. The same thing happened to mine.

There is defiantly a way you can reset the trim gauge so when your trimmed in/down in reads 0, have done it on a few optis can't quite remember how without being next to a gauge, have a read of your manual
