Default Best way to add a remote trim/trailering switch to lift outdrive from the stern.

1997 Maxum 1900 SR w/ 4.3L and Alpha One.

I'm interested in adding a remote trim/trailering switch at the stern for raising/lowering the outdrive from the stern or while the boat is on the trailer.

Has anyone done this and do you have any tips as to location of the switch, wiring specs or recommended switch kits?

Thanks!

You'll need to use a water proof switch and mount it where you have access to it yet won't be getting kicked while getting on and off the boat.

Look at te wiring diagram for the trailer switch and wire this one in parallel. You won't need to run wires to the control just to the up soloniod at the pump and bypass te trim limit switch. I can draw something up but not till next week if you want.

I installed one on my boat last spring. Here's the video I made. It's a little long, but pretty comprehensive.

It is actually not very hard to install.
