    Currently have the original Trim Master trim tab pump installed and it is not working model # 200200350. I believe they are also discontinued. Was curious if anyone has found a good replacement that is similar

    Try changing your title to include Trim Master in it and might get more response. I don't think you'd have any issues swapping out the appropriately sized Bennett pump, the pumps are pretty simple technology.....they pump fluid out to push the tabs down and they suck it back to retract them as well as having a few solenoids to open and close the circuit.

    Even the old Boat Leveler and Bennett pumps will work.
    All work with a reversible DCv motor and P & S solenoids.
    If I recall there is a good second shop near you. Tap on them for any oil pressure tab pump.

    OTOH, Can't be much wrong. Was simple enough a pump. 2 beers and a DVM should get you to the bad wire.

    Thanks for all of the replies. All wiring was good, going to go pick up the Bennett pump here shortly and swap out

    That's probably the fastest and easiest and most certain path forward. Have you checked the tabs for freedom of movement? Sometimes the hinge systems of tabs can be essentially welded into place with paint buildup over years. Might give that a quick look, too.

    Yes I did, thank you. Tabs come down with a pull and retract back themselves. Old pump is getting proper power with tabbing up and down each side, pump has just gone bad. On to the next project!

    No worries, and glad the issue was quickly resolved. We took pneumatic tools to my hinges to free them from binding, and one set of pistons had to be replaced as it failed trying to push a tab that wouldn't move. Learned the hard way. You look at those things on the hard, and they just look like they work and your mind races right past them. Good that you checked yours. I completely overlooked mine...
