I'm having a problem with my Alpha One Drive. Every time I trim it, after a few minutes the drive drops. It really changes the handling and performance of my boat. I think it must be one of the hydraulic cylinders. Anybody out there have this problem? : Twisted Evil

Hello bounty hunter, your problem is not uncommon. There is nothing wrong with the cylinders! The valve body(hydraulic pump) is by-passing. This problem can be solved by rebuilding the old valve body or replacing it with a new one. If you can supply me with the year model or drive serial number, I can determine which unit you have and send you a link to the correct replacement.
