Default Trim problems need help

So I was out yesterday Friday and on the run home my right motor started idling weird so I looked by at them and it would bounce on every wave I hit while my left motor stayed still going to work on it tomorrow and was thinks my trim oil might be low or something with the trim not holding. Was wondering if this ever happened to anyone or any suggestions thank you Pete

Sounds like you lost pressure in your trim rams. Could be several things but if you see you are low on trim fluid you have a leak somewhere that needs to be found. If the leak happens to be where salt water could enter in you want to fix this sooner rather then later since the salt water can screw things up.

First thing I would do is check the fluid and it it's low fill it up and trim the engine up and down until you find the leak. If its leaking out of the rams your seals are likely shot or the ram itself could be corroded.

If you have any water in the ram fluid, make sure you swap out all the old fluid. You don't want any salt water in there or you are asking for more trouble.
