Trailer Up - Switch

I found on a boat I was looking at a small switch labelled, "trailer up" can anyone shed any light on what it does?

Regards

Conor

Oh, that's interesting - I have one too, but it's a legacy switch from the previous Mariners that needed it for the Big Lift (for trailering). The current Etecs do the job themselves, so I think it will be the new Horn switch/button..... I guess your's raises the engines to their max height - possibly not the best position for trailering....

Thanks for the quick reply and yea, that would have been my guess - I just wondered if there was something more to it. I suppose it would be very useful on redbays were you use the "trolley" launching trailers and need to quickly turn off and raise the engines as you exit the water.

Perhaps a jackplate setting?

Dunno.
