thanks for the info.. I know not to use the trailer tilt. nice to know about the contacts. I will definitely take care of that when it's pulled out of the water this fall.
I'm basically just bumping the tilt up with a few short taps of the switch until the bow comes up a bit. being new to an IO and this set up i'm just making sure thats ok to do while running around 3200 RPM. I'm guessing the guage is way off.
thanks for the all the help over the last couple weeks.. great board here

The gauge is bouncing because the sensor has corroded contacts.
You need to verify the drive is all the way down when the gauge says it is and half way up when indicated.
Half way up is too much at speed of 6 knots unless getting thru very shallow water.
You should be able to feel the boat losing control when too much trim is applied.
