Re: Raymarine Linear Actuator Type 2S
Thanks for posting that. Good to know that this can happen, and that this is a potential fix. I haven't had it happen to me but I have the same unit so if mine stops working, I'll check it out. Loctite blue should be a good fix to hold the screw in since you can still undo it if needed.
There aren't any limit switches in the device. Lazy engineering. Raymarine recommends putting in mechanical stops either on the steering quadrant or the actuation arm that attaches the ram to the rudder shaft, preventing the ram from going to the extreme range of motion.
