    Trim gauge and a 2002 Bravo 3 Leg diagram-gctid803901

    Hi Guys,

    We are having a bowthruster fitted to our 2855, & whilst it's out of the water I have decided to sort the trim gauge. Replaced & adjusted the gauge sender & woohoo, we have a fully functioning gauge, OK, so far so good. Reads fully down & all the way up to fully up

    Problem I have is I have done the limit switch, (this never did anything ever before), checked with a multimeter & have the sensor switch off at, (think the instructions said 554mm eye to eye on the ram but left them at the boatyard) This is showing at appox halfway on the trim gauge, (Does anyone know if this is about the correct cut off, I have no idea on a safe level of trim on the leg???) but the leg doesn't stop so looks like someone has messed before to bypass it.

    I dont suppose anyone has a wiring diagram for the sensors do they?

    Cheers, Shane

    Recomended trim limit dimention is 21 3/4" from pin to pin on the trim rams.

      Sounds like the limit switch was previously bypassed, it is common to do so as it can be a pita to replace a non functioning limit switch so guys just bypass it. Look for a jumper wire installed at the interior transom area, it's a plastic fitting screwed to the transom that holds the wire connections together.

        Cheers Dave,

        Sounds like I have the measurement correct then at least. It has continuity until it gets to 21 3/4" then shuts off so the sensor adjustment is right :-) Just need to find where they have bypassed it. Also need to suss out how the limit switch works on the throttle housing as I can't see a separate trailer switch so I am thinking it has the push lightly for normal, then hard for trailer. Been searching the net for pics/vids but cant find a throttle like we have, not the best pic but maybe someone can help :-)

            This is the connection inside my engine bay at the transom for the limit switch. I don't have the limit switch connected to it in this pic. Also mine is near the trim/tilt pump, yours may be in a different location. Like Joon said just follow the wires.
