    Tom, does the autotrim pro combine the auto-trim with a trim indicator? I loved the autotrim feature I installed on my 320, but it did not have position indication. I'm on your website now.

    Yes, as long as you install the indicator sensors in the actuator it will display Tab position.

    I'm pretty sure I do not have sensors currently. Is this an easy install on the actuators? Do I get the kit from Bennett? Mike

    OK, doing homework. I get the kit from a distributor too. Now, how do I know if I need 12V vs 24V?

    Most likely a 12v on that boat. Here is a link to the sensor installation instructions https://bennetttrimtabs.com/installManuals/AutoTrim-Pro-Sensor-Installation-WEB.pdf

    Note:
    IF ACTUATOR STROKE IS LESS THAN 1" OR MORE THAN 2-1/2", OR IF LESS THAN 1" OF PISTON SHAFT IS EXPOSED
    WHEN THE ACTUATOR IS FULLY RETRACTED, HAS EXTERNAL HYDRAULIC CONNECTION, OR THREE RINGS MOLDED
    ON CYLINDER BODY (SEE FIGURE 1), SPECIAL SENSOR COILS ARE REQUIRED. (CONTACT BENNETT MARINE)

    I may be adding the Auto Trim Pro this spring. Any real worl experience you care to share? My 320 trims out pretty easily and with 496 engines, I don’t use the tabs to get on plane. It’s winter and I need to plan a boat project!

    I loved it to keep the boat at the attitude I wanted while underway. Winds, waves, kids moving around. I Didn't need it to plane either. Mike
