The port trim tab blows the breaker (pulls 24 amps) when activated, up or down. This is a recent problem and I think it may be the solenoid valve on the top of the Benet trim tab unit. Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks in advance...

have someone work the tab controls and se/feel the solenoids to see if they are working or shorted out.

How old is the system? Try putting 12v positive on the red wire right at the solenoid and see if it sparks. If so the solenoid (or entire pump if you want) needs to be replaced
