Default Trim Tabs

Has anyone come up with a setup to control the tabs from the throttle? It would make my 22' less stressful to drive.

Livorsi!!!! You can have the switch work the tabs or drives. Get the handle with 2 switches and you can control both the tabs and drives or both tab/drives independently of each other. Depending on the controls that you currently have, you can also get the add on kit from Livorsi.

Fred @ Trick Marine is a good source for Livorsi products

just got done changing out my single switch on the throttle to a twin switch on the throttle. This is for the drives. You can do the same for the tab or tabs also. If you have two I would recomend twin buttons to proper leveling. Only place I have found the twin switch was through Rex Marine.
Also you may look into one for the sterring wheel.
I have a single switch on the steering wheel for my center tab

Here is the twin button I just put on from Rex Marine

two problems with this switch
first, if your handles cant forward you may not have room

Second and mor important in my book, they are not ergornomically correct.
At least the one I have is right in line with my thumb.

Next best thing to do is get new handles with the switches right on it However, even then the thumb needs to be retracted some unless you have real small hands

One I really really like is the Marine machine throttles.
but damnnnnn$$$$$$$$$$$$$
they have two little push buttons on the front, very easy and slick setup
