I am setting up a two battery system with a stinger battery isolator relay switch - as your EXCELLENT posts describe. My question is can I wire the trim motor to the house battery.

I have a 95 force 120 outboard on my boat. The trim motor is wired to the starter solenoid. Because I can't figure out why I am afraid to rewire the trim motor to the house battery.

You can wire the trim motor to either battery. Probably hooked to the starter because that was a shorter run to a good power source than the batt.
Personally I'd keep all the engine functions on the start battery and accesories on the house battery, but it makes no difference.
