Question

I have to replace the hydraulic hoses on my trim tabs. They are insta trim tabs by boat leveler. One of the hoses sprung a leak the other day. The manufacturer is sending me new hoses and actuators. Once I install the actuators and hoses, do I need to bleed the system? If so, how should I do this? Thanks for the help!

Boat Leveler Insta Trim is a good system.
The hoses do fail at the actuators sometimes
due to the movement. Make sure you leave a good bend
on the hose for the swivel of the ram before you
tighten the clamshell.
The system is self bleeding. Just run it full down
and full up a couple of times.
Easy!
