Default Port side drive will not come up to trailer position?

Both drives trim up and down fine, but when I'm ready to take the boat out of the water port side will not come up for trailer mode? what can I check?

Bravo drives I assume? Most likely the trim limit switch. Depending if this is a bravo or XR depends exactly where it is but it’ll near where the drive meets the helmet or on the pivots of the gimbal ring.

Yes its a bravo One. I'm going to open the switch up and see if its making good contact.

There is only one switch for both drives and the other drive works fine, unless the relay is on the pump?

FWIW, only a handful of builders use that capability. There is no issue with bypassing the trailer limit switch. .
