Question Shifter / Throttle control

Hi everyone, I have an '89 mercruiser 5.7l sterndrive. On the throttle, trim, gearshift, there is a button that says "trailer" does anyone know what this button does or what it controls?

I believe that it raises the outdrive so that you can trailer the boat.

I thought that it had something to do with that but the trim button lifts the leg up. Does the "trailer' button lift it higher?
