Default '03 225 Not holding trim position

My BF225 is not holding Trim.

I had the trim assembly replaced 2 - 3 years ago.

This past week I started noticing that after I trimmed the engine up while running it was moving back down.

could this be a fluid level - btw....what type of fluid to add if its low and what is the best way to add trim fluid ?

or....am I looking at a problem with seals and a rebuild or replace again ?

Thanks
Bill

Note: I am going to head over to the marina and check the tightness of the manual release valve / screw for the tilt/trim.

Might check the manual release and fluid level with motor tilted up all the way. If oil is foamy then may need to bleed air out of hydraulic system.
