One of my Lenco electric trim tabs on my 180 Dauntless is malfunctioning. It will go down but will not retract. It is now stuck in the down position. Does anyone know how to trouble shoot this? Any trick to manually retracting the tab until I can repair it?

Thanks

I think LENCO tabs are all electric. Is there any sign of electrical power being sent to the actuator when it is supposed to retract? You need to determine if the fault is in the actuator, or if the fault is in the control system.

I should have done this earlier, but I went to Lenco's website last night and it has an excellent troubleshooting section. I now know what to look for so hopefully I can determine [the cause of the fault in the trim tab system] this weekend.
