Re: Testing a Simrad TP30?
In addition to what you have done (proved the motor et al works), you might try powering it up motionless, putting it in AUTO, then turning it just a little to one side then the other, watch it move one way then the other, turn it a lot, watch it move a lot, etc.
If you do not have the "Manual Navico TP 20 & 30 Tillerpilots" and "Tillerpilot TP10, TP20 & TP30 Service Manual", Google them up. Failing that, send me a note with your email address, and I'll send them to you.
I used the remote to steer the (motoring) boat from the bow under the shade of the sails and to bring the boat into the wind for raising and lowering the mainsail.
