Forward trim switch

Does anyone know what has to be done to add a tilt/trim switch at the front deck of the boat? Does it take a special switch or can the standard rocker switch be tied into the system?

Thanks

You want to add a completely waterproof good-quality trim switch. Depending on your model number you can also purchase Y-connectors to easily adapt the wiring near the control box for another trim switch. See your dealer for choices and recommendations.

To provide electrical connections to “tap into” the trim harness with a second trim switch (i.e. bow mounted trim). 
176534 "Y" Connector Only - 6"
176588 "Y" Connector with 13' Cable no Switch
176560 "Y" Connector with 13' Cable and Remote Trim Switch


How to connect a bow mounted T&T switch to the control head harness:
The 3 wires from the switch in the bow panel must be routed to the console or area where the control head harness is located. Use splitter P/N 176534 that plugs in between the control head harness & the control head T&T switch. It provides an additional Deutsch connector that you connect to the wires from the bow-panel switch. Connect red to red, blue to blue & green to green.
