Default Lenco Trim Tab Problem

I have basic lenco tabs, no control box. One operates fine, the other does nothing (no noise or movement). Replaced the rocker switches, but didn't help.
What should I try next?

Depending on your installation there could be a join in the wire down in your bilge - these often give trouble. If you find the joint I would open it up and then you can test it form there by applying 12v across the two wires. If no response then its your actuator.

I would be checking the voltage going to the "ram" of the trim tab as someone activates the switch..Ground? Corrosion?, wiring break? Fairly simple system. Get the volt meter out.
