mbird Posted December 20, 2009 Share Posted December 20, 2009 Hi All The new boat I think may have a slight issue with a trim tab. These are hydraulic Eltrim tabs, and I have checked both oil levels which seem to be fine. The starboard tab operates fine, but the port tab seems a bit sluggish to react, but also will not fully retract. Though I haven't yet driven her at speed, when the boat was being demo'd on the river trial, there was a marked list to starboard on the first couple of runs, until the guy who took us out fiddled with the tabs. I now think this may have been the cause, and he corrected it by lowering the starboard tab to compensate. The tab fully extends okay, albeit a little slower than the starboard one, but when retracting, it stops with three lights still showing on the display. Is there anything obvious I should check first (like a limit switch?), or is it more likely to be a bent shaft on the hydraulic ram? Any help for this tab numpty gratefully received Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
