Default Trim indication

Morning Gents,

A quick question: My rig is a Crestliner Raptor with a 200 L4 Verado. The trim position indication on both the actual indicator, and via the Smartcraft gauge have both been slowly showing a trim up of 1.2 to 1.4 over the last 2months or so when reaching the lowest position.
Is it correct to assume that when the down trim is hitting the lowest limit by the change in sound that this is just an indication issue?

Is there a quick adjustment to correct the indication back to zero when full down?

Thanks for any information!!

Have you looked into calibrating your SmartCraft gauges?? Google it, or search YouTube for info. Yes it sounds like your bottomed out.

You can also have someone at the back of the boat, when the boat is on the trailer and have them look - at a safe distance as the motor is raised and lowered. They will be able to easily tell if the motor is bottomed out. But, yes, normally when the sound of the trim motors change, it is a good indication that the motor has bottomed out.

Be safe
