motor position when trailering
My son has a 115 johnson. He is wondering about tilt position when
trailering down the road. Tilted part way up is a lock that takes the
load off the lifting piston. However when tilting all the way up to
horizontal there is another lever that locks it there but then the
lifting pistons lock is no longer engaged. Is one position better
than the other?

There was a recent thread discussing this very subject:

The middle lock is the "trailering support" according to Johnson's owners manuals. If the other manufacturers did the same, all of the trailering support discussions would cease.

One of my boats has a 150 johnson and I use the lever on the motor about 1/2 way up.

as has been said already, johnson/evinrude motors have that setting specifically for trailering. The other manufacturers should get on board. :)
