Went out fishing today and when I came into dock noticed my trim was super slow like low power lifting the motor. I thought I had a dead battery but engine starts right up. I the trim motor hooked into the motor? If a trim motor goes out what do they typically do? I just bought the boat and it has a deep cycle battery on the starting side. It's a 225 hp mercury 99' model. If it is the motor how much am I looking at for replacement?

Around 300 or so for the motor need a serial number to tell ya a parts price. Does it go up slow or down slow. When I say slow is the motor spinning any different one way or the other. Also try it with the boat plugged in. 900amp on the cranking battery.

Also if it turns out to be the motor and you have a way to pull it your self they are simple to rebuild if it is still operational. Most of the time they just needed cleaned they will get this grayish gunk built up in them. I have heard of guys flushing the old ones with break fluid just to get through a race now I wouldn't do that with yours.
