    Re: Trim Control Ease

    Operates drives up or down from the throttle with just one switch for two drives.

    I just got my single switch for two drives from rexmarine.com. When you order the switch, you can also purchase the diode kit which is needed to use one switch for both drives. I'd check with Fred at trickmarine.net first as he carries the switch in limited colors..... The diode kit is like 25 bucks, if your good with wiring, you could build it from radio shack....

    Anyone know what size diodes to get? Just two diodes and a little wire is all you need.

    Single switch works great compared to the dual dash rocker switches....

    Good luck!

    Re: Trim Control Ease

    If anyone needs diodes for their drive or tab switches just go to any electronics store and get 1N4001 axial lead diodes @ 10 -20 amps. Diodes are dirt cheap, comparatively speaking.

    The diodes just provide isolation to allow for continued single operation of a tab or drive. Most any diode will work as long as the current capacity is not exceeded. PIV is a non issue with 12VDC.
