Raymarine ST4000 disengages by itself

Anyone have experience with the ST4000 wheel pilot disengaging itself? It seems the feedback from the rudder shakes the unit internally and causes the lever to over center itself and disengage. We have 5 boats with this unit, none of them more than 2 years old and have problems with all of them to some degree. Cleaning and reassembling helps for a while, but the problem always returns. Next step is to replace the back cover, cam lever and eccentrics. Any ideas?
