Trim sender

I would like to have the trim setting show up on my chart plotter through my NEMA 2000 system. All the other engine info show up on my chart plotter fine. What part do I need to add to the engine to get this reading? Is this a DIY task or better left to a dealer? Do you have to run another wire to your NEMA 2000 backbone or does it hook up inside the engine?

Engine E150DPXAB Serial 05436112

Does your chart plotter display the Evinrude trim setting? You may have to contact the manufacture or read the instruction manual.

See your dealer as you may need a new wiring harness from the motor to the keyswitch. There are 2 types and yours may be the MWS series instead of the I-Command type used with NMEA2000.

Also with the correct components, your dealer had to program the EMM to tell it to send the trim data.

My chart plotter Garmin 7610xsv shows a trim setting gauge but there is no number being displayed now. I have a NMEA 2000 drop plugged into the motor now. It picks up motor info now, such as gal/hr, rpm, water temp, barometric  pressure, etc.

It won’t recognize trim until the dealer changes the settings in the emm. Bill s correct..I have the same issue. Also if you don’t have a working trim gauge you also need to install in-line a resistor. Very simple . I will find a link that is very good on the procedure.

This is good info.

i hope it’s ok to post.

Re: Trim sender

Thanks realfun1 for that link info. I have only the system check gauge or MWS harness so If I read the info correct, I only need to add a 47 ohm 5 watt resistor to that wire harness and then have the dealer set up the EMM. The EMM then will send the trim value via my installed NMEA cable. The EMM senses when the trim is changed without any additional parts??

Re: Trim sender

Yes, I believe that is correct. There is a lot of additional info available on this topic at that website. But it is that simple. That resistor is less that 5 bucks.  Good luck with that and let us know how it went for you.

Being a company site, disclaimers have to be made, and posts have to adhere to Evinrude policies and procedures.
