Default Trim / tilt - both motors stopped working

These are 200hpdis. I ran the boat last night and everything seemed fine except when I got back to the dock the starboard motor was a little slow to come up. Now this am neither motor will power up or down at all.

Using the individual switches, or combined switches has the same result. I can hear the hydo motors spinning, but neither will move. It seems super weird they would both stop working simultaneously since they are on stand alone hydro systems. Any ideas?

So last night you tilted them both all the way up?
And now neither will go down?
but you hear the t/t motors running?

At least with them all the way up, you can add fluid to overflowing -
but then you may still have to drop them with the manual bypass -
and they may not come back up on their own...

Most likely something common to both motors... wiring to the helm switch(es)? Did you try switches on engines cowls?

The hydraulic motors are spinning - I can hear them so it’s not switch related. I think I somehow have a simultaneous fluid leak.

Check and clean all your grounds at the motors and at the batteries.

Did you check the fluid reservoirs?
