Re: Tiller Pilot on Windvane

Yes put it in a cover. But more importantly mount it so the ram is pointing slightly downward to prevent it from filling up with water. Wipe some kind of lube on the seals, wire grommet and ram...often. Like Vaseline. Don't trust the supplied Raymarine connector. I splice mine in directly, under the deck.
