The motor may be getting tired if the nozzle is just stopping and the gauge has nothing to do with it. It is a separate circuit. If your gauge is stopping part way and the nozzle goes full travel both ways I would check and see if your getting water in from the shaft boot. I just dealt with that on my ski. Dried everything out and it started working again. Found pin holes in the boot.
This link has great info on diagnosing the trim system and how it all works. Has a complete schematic of the module.

thanx that helped eliminate that concern.. ive played with this thing too much and cant figure it out... let me explain...
ive pulled the motor off and it and manually slide the screw back and forth across the limit switches in the black box.. tha gauge reads its position everytime perfectly.. i mount the motor in with the trim set all the way up, hit the down button and it operates like ti should till it reaches the bottom.. now i hit up and it starts to pull the trim up but only makes it to maybe half way before it just stops.. heres the part that gets me.. i carefully remove the motor so as not to disturb the trim.. once i remove the motor i can manually turn the screw for the trim and it returns all the way to the top position and is relative to the gauge.. ive tried this same scenario numerous times.. for some reason the motor can not pull the trim all the way up yet i can manuall with my fingers.. what gives??!!!
