I have a Raymarine ST2000+ tiller pilot. In going to install it, the way my boat is laid out, the best way to install it would result in its being about 5 degrees diagonal to the transom, looking down on...


Hi!

I can't see being 5 degrees off line much of a problem as far as the sweep is concerned.

I'm fairly sure that when you do your 1 1/2 to 2 SLOW circles that the tillerpilot will correct itself to read closer to your actual compass heading as well.

Hope this helps you out.
Happy Boating!

My Ray Marine ST 1000 auto tiller pilot started setting stuck, but not consistantly. the shaft just vibrates in some spots but does not move. what could be the probable cause?


the worm gear that is inside the unit may need to lubricated,, remove the bottom case and lubricate gears and shaft with a teflon or silicone based lube. also on my sailboat when this happened I found that I needed to re-calibrate the unit - take the boat out into a very calm and open water and ' spin the boat ' in CAL mode ( this will re-orientate the internal compass ).
have fun on the water and have a great night,

I have just purchased a simrad tp22, it has arrived with no instruction book on how to install it, Can the tp be installed on either port or starbord, if so how is this acheived


when installing the unit --- you can mount it on the port or starbord side, and when all is in place you will need to go out and ' spin ' the boat ( this callibrates the internal compass ). there is a certain distance that the auto pilot needs to be mounted away from the tiller and sometimes a special bracket is needed to mount correctly. it has been years since I installed the one on my boat and not having the manual in front of me I don't want to just throw out numbers --- if I was looking at the boat and tiller I could tell you where to put it. also, if you are interfacing the unit with a GPS or Radar you will want to get the manual to make sure those wires get to the right place.
there is a company that I use to be associated with down in Seattle, WA ( The Off Shore store,, 206-632-3025 ) -- they are a Simrad dealer and they have all the manuals there and they would be more than happy to e-mail you the info that you are looking for,, they are nice people ( at least they were 6 years ago ). they can also order you any extra parts that you may need to make your installation easier. ((( tell them that Chris that use to work for Todd sent you to them -- you are sure to get special treatment then ))). enjoy the water and wind,

Auto pilot will not hold course. Wants to go to port as soon as it is turned on


What model autopilot? If it is a Raytheon/Raymarine try switching the motor leads to see if that works.

Linear rudder refernce Furuno 500 auto pilot will not pass test?


light on board is probably normal no, this is an inductive pickup, can not test with ohmeter, sorry. Test with display, observing rudder angle display. Do rudder setup repeatedly until it works, it is a little fussy for placement and clearance but patience and the correct "bracketry" will make this pilot perform great.

RayMarine wheel 4000


You would need to supply more info to pin point problem. 1) Do you have hydaulic steering?If so do you have a rudder feed back sensor. 2) Is this a new install or did the pilot work properly before 3) Do you have a smart pilot course computer in the system or is the wheel drive run straight from the head unit. 4)What was the deveation reading on your auto pilot compass when it was swang. 5)Was the pilot comissioned by a qualified person. I know there is a lot of questions here but there could be many things that are causing the S.Once the above questions are resolved I should be able to narrow it down to one or two things.
