There is no difference between Trim Wheel and other functions....

You can set for Left and right (Fast left /Fast right) different funtions.
Easy way use Key Presses and set in FSX for Trimm up and Trimm down the Keys of youre choce.

In PMDG maby you need to use the Event ID´s and Values for Mousewheel Up and down.

Additional there are some FSUIPC Offsets where you can write directly the value of Trim in the FSX.

You see... Same like evry other button or Encoder .
Good Luck !
