Default Mercury Active Trim

Has anyone ever used this or installed it? It's interesting to me.

Thumbs up mercury active trim

I'm looking for input also! Talked to dealer was told that it can be purchase as a stand alone unit, thinking about for the wife when she drives the boat! Cost estimate $650.00 installed. Easier if you have vessel view,controlled thru screen! Looks like it should save fuel.

I just purchased the stand alone unit for about $480 and installed it myself in about 20 minutes. Super easy with smartcraft gauges and digital throttle, just plug and play.

Where did you purchase at? Did you have to drill or run wiring? where did you mount the control unit or do you have vessel view? and finally have you used it? any thoughts as to it's value!

Default Me too

Before I buy an active trim kit, having anhard time locating where to put it. On my Impact, it looks like the side of the helm may be the best location as the cockpit does not have any flat areas available.

Also, where does the VCM need tobe mounted.

Any pics are apprecated.

Active trim is available as a factory installed option for 2018 Lund so I would try to find info from dealer or Lund as to how and where they are rigging it on these models.

Seems absolutely ridiculous to me. On the big, busy, rough waters I fish,I drive my boat with the trim button more than the throttle. Trim down for wakes and rogue waves, trim back up. trim down for a sharp turn, trim back up. Trimming on smooth water isnt exactly rocket science either, I'll keep the money, thank you.
