    VTS works but only moves slightly from the down position then stops.

    2007 RXP VTS works but only moves slightly from the down position then stops. The gauge shows 1 then 2 bars then jumps to the full up position and motor stops. I have bench tested the motor and it works freely in both directions.The discharge snout also works freely. Any thoughts?

    Are you pressing the button slowly? I know on my 2011 wake pro if you hit the button twice rapidly it will jump to the highest position, same for hitting the down button twice rapidly...

    at first I thought mine wasn't working but figured it out, just have to hit it slowly and let it move up or down before hitting it again.

    open the cover, and see if the motor mounts are broken/ rotted. What year VTS is it?

    Mine did the same thing. I pulled it all apart, lubed everything well (soaked the motor with WD-40) and it started working again. I'm not certain but I believe the electronics encased in the housing sense a build up in resistance for limit switches on the travel. If it is sticking the unit will change direction or just quiver back and forth. I had already ordered a new housing by the time I figured this out so I went ahead and installed the new unit. They are NOT cheap!

    mine did this on my 07, it was the housing. I bought a used one off here and it works fine now.
