    Power T&T warranty

    Well my 2017 F150XB power tilt and trim will not support my motor tilt up . It will leak down after about 5 hrs or so. There no sign of fluid leak anywhere and manual release screw are tight . Would that be cover under warranty ?
    Thanks

    I am not an actor, but I play one on TV....

    (I'm not claiming to be an expert) My experience tells me it is likely to be a check valve that is allowing pressure to leak by, or perhaps an internal leak past the ram piston seal. Hopefully they change that seal too as it is probably only $10 or so and it should be right there and easy to get at.

    I am confident that you probably won't have additional problems.
    Cheers!

    They may not see anything 'obviously' wrong as internal seals lose their, well, sealing ability over time (worn out, harden, etc, but not necessarily 'fail'). Definitely more of a fluke thing to happen on a newer engine. Could have been a small fleck of dirt in there that caused a seal to not seal so well.

    Yes, bleeding down like that in your stated period of time.... that is not normal. Technically though, I believe the tilt ram is only supposed to lift the engine so you can deploy the tilt supports.

    Another thing often overlooked is that after the tilt supports are put in place to hold the engine up, you should actuate the tilt down switch, and continue until the trim rams are fully retracted.

    I rarely do this, but that is how my manual reads.
    I do it if the boats is going to be stored for a while, as with the trim rams retracted, they are protected in an oil bath and not exposed to the corrosive elements. The exposed tilt ram can then be protected by wiping in a coat of hydraulic fluid or even motor oil.

    Please return and let us know how you make out with the warranty. I love a happy ending.
    Cheers!

    My 2006 F150 doesn't leak down what so ever.

    Your still way within warranty and there's really no maintenance you could have missed/been blamed for...

    Yamaha will take care of it... No doubt.


    If not too late, get the extended warranty.

    (My dealer forgot to turn in the paper work for the additional time, so I got an EXTRA YEAR WARRANTY!)
    I also have the 3 year YES warranty after the manufacture warranty run out.

    Well I just drop the boat off at repair center. They assume Yamaha will cover the repair. The motor isnít even 2 year. I brought it late 2017. My old 1999 OX66 never had any trim issue . Hard to believe that this motor having trim issue. Hopefully Yamaha stand behind their warranty .
