Great info, I will check that as well, and get back to you guys with the culprit.

I've had em leak from the 4 way junction box as well as the top of the gimbal ring where it pivots. They have seal kits for both. If u can take and spray water from the inside and c if it leaks out where the junc box is. If not spray directly where the gimbal pivots from the inside if u can get to it, have someone watch from the outside while u spray

Default Another possible location

Another possible spot is where the trim indicator/limit switch wires pass through the transom assembly. It's just to the right of the bellows
