My trim tab (wake plate) on my 07 SSV has stopped working. It was working intermittently over the winter, and was doing the same thing on sat, but now it won’t move up or down. The gauge is fine, and I hear the motor moving but the plate is not moving. The hydraulic fluid appears to be a normal level (filled about ¾ or more of the way), although there is no level indicator on the reservoir. Something else strange is when you set the smart plate to auto on the “perfect pass” a relay clicks then the motor moves, this repeats until you flip it back to manual. It’s a pulsing sound. Relay click, motor move, relay click, motor move, ect… It’s under warranty but I don’t want to have to take the boat off the lift and run it to the dealer just for this if I don’t’ have to. The plate is stuck all the way down and makes the rough water ride horrible. I have to ride across the lake to get to a riding spot. Is there a way to manually move it?
I tried the gauge recalibration noted in the manual…that did nothing. What is the system diagnostics check that you can ruin thru the info center display in the dash instrument cluster?
After about 4 hours on the boat the breaker that controls the trim tab popped for no apparent reason???
