Default Trim tab Conversion

Hi there, I have a 3300 SCR and Need to replace the original Bennett hydronic trim tab actuators. I was doing some research and found that Bennett offers a hydraulic to electric conversion kit. Itís called the BOLT system. Any body ever use this on a larger boat?
Seems like a great product because it eliminates the oil and pump.
Iím not sure if the factory wiring will support the amp draw requirements for the electric actuators.
Go here to read up on it.

I honestly feel like you are stretching the application of an electric trim tab. Unfortunately, Bennett and the boating community recently lost 'Tabman' who was an amazing technical support resource for Bennett. He was active on this and other sites.

What is it about hydraulic that you are attempting to steer away from? Hydraulic is a significant more robust system.

I agree. The hydraulic system is robust and proven.
I just see this as an opportunity to eliminate another oil source that could make its way into the water.
I reached out to Bennett direct also, Iíll let you know what they say.

Thanks for the comments!
