Not sure how the lock down works on your motor but:Many motors if you shift to forward you can tilt it up.If it is not running you may have to crank it slightly as you try to shift.
Some motors have a little lever on the front of the mounting bracket simply put in unlock.Most motors have a little pin or latch to hold in the tilted position.Don`t use the latch to hold it when trailering.
When trailering with the motor tilted it should be supported.You can buy or make a support to go from the lower unit to the trailer.I have trailered many times with my motor in the down position.But be aware the motor could drag or hit the ground if to close.
