took the boat out a couple of weeks ago, and my trim switch at the throttle quit working.....the bow switch works fine, as well as the switch on the motor....mercury 115....is there some type of fuse for the trim switch at the throttle, or is it just the switch gone bad?....boat is a 1999 triton tr17 with 99 merc 115.......thanks

More than likely the trim switch is bad and will need to be replaced.

Done it many times and never had any issues as long as it was shrink wrapped..
