Default Need BRAVO 1 HELP ASAP!!

I took my boat out and docked it at the local marina, replaced my bunks and brought her back, when we pulled her out and reached the top of the ramp I hopped out to put on the tow straps and noticed that my drive was only halfway up. I tried unsuccessfully on several occasions both on land and putting her back in water, with the motor running, and not, the drive will only go half-way up and is just stops. The drive pump just quits like there is a kill switch, it works perfectly up to that point. I had to leave the boat at the dock parking lot, I cannot get it up the slightest hill and there are several.

1) Is there a way to release the drive and then lock-it in the up posistion?

2) WTF is going on?

thanx

limit switch out of whack?

Plus you can still jump the trim solenoid and run it up the rest of the way if it is the switches acting up.

I swapped out the fuse, it was a bad fuse! As soon as I put the other fuse in, the trailer switch worked.

thanx for the replies

I can show you were it is, just hop in the water, hold your breath, it's right next to the prop, you can't get to it till the RPMs hit 4000!
