Raymarine EV100 Wheel Pilot

My wheel pilot works well except for one thing. At times the clutch handle will disengage on its own. Usually with a following sea but it happened the other day while motoring into 1-2 ft waves.
Is there an adjustment I need to make ?

Re: Raymarine EV100 Wheel Pilot

I have the same problem. It's horrible and gets progressively worse -- recently, I couldn't get it to steer even a straight course in calm waters. For a while, a small bungee was effective in keeping the wheel engaged but that eventually failed and when it did, the unit was even less reliable. I am going to try to send mine back to the factory, but I am not hopeful. In reading about it, I see that new cams for the clutch mechanism and new belts are both available online . . . not sure how effective a fix they will be though.
Luck -- keep us posted!
