Raymarine compass interference

I have a Raymarine ST5000 plus autopilot. The flux compass is located inside the port settee. On a sail this weekend, the command was real jerky and sluggish. Sometimes it would over-correct to an alarming degree. I have the manual, but could not get it to go into the setting to increase the tracking control. It just goes directly into rudder gain. Has anyone had the same issue?

I had also recently bought a dinghy battery and stored it inside the settee with the compass. Could this have caused some of the interference?
