tilt/trim burning fuses

2 posts in this topic

I just pulled the old '81 Glastron out of the shed. When I put it away (2 years ago) the power tilt/trim had quit working out on the lake. I traced it down to a burned fuse. In order to get it on the trailer and back home, I just put a little piece of tin foil in to jump it. had no problems. put it away, didn't get it out last year, now this year, I bought some new fuses, put one in....nothing, another.....nothing. looking at the fuses, it looks like it is burning them out right away. It had a new selanoid (sp) put in the year it first blew the fuse. Any ideas????? is this going to cost me an arm an a leg?? I did start it up and it still purrs like a kitten. the boat and motor are both '81. up until the selanoid, we had not had the boat in the shop for any reason....and this thing has been used plenty in it's day!!! still looks almost as good as it did the day dad pulled it off the showroom floor in '81!! Let me know your thoughts on the tilt/trim issue. thanks!! hoping to be able to get it out this weekend.

Sounds like you have a dead short... I'd follow the wires from the relay to the motor and make sure they're not rubbed through or pinched.

If that's not the case then it's likely in the tilt and trim motor.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
