Short out the up terminal on the pump or disconnect the hydraulic hoses and force it up

Alternatively if the boats in the water and you have access to an ennerpak pump or Porto power pump and can source fittings you could use a hand pump to pump up the drive

Not in the water, on the trailer but with the drive down and the other electrical issue, I'm very limited to what I can do with her.

I'll try hardwire the pump and see what happens
