View Full Version : 2103 X10 - Trim/Surf tab issue

05-29-2014, 12:08 PM
I have an issue with my starboard surf/trim tab. The actuator looks to be retracted or 0% deployed.

The touch screen is showing that the tab is 100% deployed. When I try and put it back to 0% deployed via the touch screen it tries for a second and then displays 100% deployed.

The manual switch is not doing anything either (it will act on the port side).

The attitude plate and the port side work fine, just starboard is not working.

I have rebooted the lcd but it still comes up showing 100% deployed.

Any ideas?

I turned off the power hoping it will drain reset the lcd to clear that.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the surf tabs? I could not find any of the underdash circuit breakers labeled for the surf tabs, any dies where the fuses/breakers are for these?

My boat is about 100 mile from the dealer so I'd like to troubleshoot this myself before taking it in.

Thanks, E

Wow - Future Boat - Are you a looper, lol:D

Sounds like a bad actuator to me.

My 2012 x25 just had similar issues. The dealer said it was a bad actuator and replaced it but I'm skeptical. Originally for surfing all tabs would go down. Then after cruise the center would come up and both surf tabs would stay down... Then when I deactivated cruise all tabs would eventually come up but come to find the drivers side tab actually didn't. I'm 100miles from dealer as well but there was no easy solution for this, I'm just hoping they really found the root cause

My dealer checked it out and said it was a bad actuator.

It looks like they did replace it and it all works fine now. I am like you , skeptical... I always wonder if they do what they say they did.

I was kinda of shocked that they said I was out of warranty for 3 weeks. I took possession of my boat on 5/31/2013 and reported the problem on 5/30/2014. Apparently the warranty starts the day day your build starts... ***?

But Mastercraft covered it under warranty so I guess I cannot complain, I just hope the new one (and the others) last longer than one year.
