Question about Boating
The electric tilt is not working and we have to remove boat from lake before winter sets in. Is there a manual tilt on the motor?
There should be a hydraulic bypass valve screw on the tilt assembly. Usually a large slotted screw driver is needed to loosen the valve. The motor can now be lifted manually, but not with ease.

Hello moose10 & caligirl41. I only know of electric tilts controlling a hydraulic pump and valves. There outboards and inboard motors with tilts controled by both, a mechanical manual lift as a backup in some cases. I suggest you check the level in your reservoir of hydraulic fluid. This chamber may or may not be available with the boat in the water. Watch for leaks. The other possibility is electrical. Check for the sound of the pump pumping when activating, if no sound check your switch, wiring and electrical power to the controls.I wish you the best in your indevor.
