Suzuki DF140 2015 Trim gauge on the fritz.

I noticed after the round Anglesey run that the trim gauge wasn't giving a reading. There's a little sensor you can see under the front of the engine which I'm guessing is the trim gauge and that's moving freely, and the wire is properly connected and has no visible corrosion.

I'm wondering whether it might be to do with the fact the ECU was replaced under warranty earlier this year. Does the trim gauge report to the engine then the engine tells the dials or what? Seems daft if it does, but I'm just wondering.

It will be to do with the ecu. The trim limits need resetting and it should work.

It went to Dickies in Bangor for the ecu recall, so I'm inclined to try and get it back in there to have the trim ram sorted.
