Any advice for inoperable trim tabs? I can hear the motor run when I engage the switch for either the port or starboard side but no movement from either trim tab. I have a 29' Classic.

Have you checked that there is oil in the reservoir?

Check the fluid. Sounds like air in the line.

I had a split Hyd Cyl. These are like the most simple device on the boat.
