Jackplate switch

So I think my Jackplate switch may be going out but I was wondering if anyone has ever used the 2nd slot on the co trip box throttle for a Jackplate switch? Could you just buy a switch for trim and wire it to the Jackplate relays or is it more complicated than that?

I have a Yamaha throttle handle sitting on my desk. Looking at making a replacement piece to house two switches like the Tohatsus. I'm also considering a couple other ideas that look a lot better than that cheap Chinese push button switch that everyone is using. Now I just need to find some more time to work on it...

I also have another idea besides the dual thumb switch that will work better - i.e. allow you to keep one hand on the wheel, one hand on the binnacle, and use your thumb for trim and index/middle for jackplate. I may have some time this week to work on a prototype.
