Trim tab trouble shooting?

First off my boat is an 06' X30 with one single middle wake plate. The boat has 750 hours on it. Any idea how long the actuator might last? The reason I ask is because I had the boat out for the first time this year and was checking all the systems. The trim tab does not work. All the wire connections seem snug and the fuse not blown. I am not very electrically inclined but is there any easy way to check with component in that system is bad? The switch? The actuator? Or the "control box"?

My bet is the actuator has gone bad. They do eventually leak which obviously kills everything inside. A friend of mine also has an 06 X30 - had to replace his actuator last summer because it had filled with water. Pretty easy job - just be sure to use a waterproof splice in the bilge.

I had a seal fail on an actuator at less than 80 hours on my boat, so I would say they could go at any time. It filled with water and the actuator would not extend or retract its full range. It was replaced under warranty

Sounds like that may be the culprit. Checked today and the switch is getting power. Thanks so much for the help
