Raymarine ST4000+ question ...
I have no previous experience with autopilots.
I’m looking at a boat that has a 1999 era Raymarine ST-4000+ autopilot (wheel pilot) installed. The owner removed part of the wheel drive and has it stored in the lazarette.
The broker said the owner felt the wheel was binding/dragging and took it out. It looks like all the wheels `n such are intact and the wheel drive unit could be put back together.
The control head display was blank when I powered up with the rest of the instruments. The broker thinks the owner may have disconnected power to the control head at the same time he disassembled the wheel drive.
Assume the wheel drive unit is put back together and connected again, what is “normal” when the instrument cluster is powered up? The manual says “When switched on, the ST4000 will be in `standby’ mode.” I can’t find a switch and the manual doesn’t really say anything about what should be displayed on the control head when it is powered up.
