    Looking for Raymarine ST3000 plug socket

    Anyone have a power plug/socket for a Raymarine ST3000 lying around? Seems a long shot but mine is coming apart at the autopilot is getting wonky as a result. You can hear it getting inconsistent power draws and sometimes it loses power altogether.

    I'm sure you know this, but you just need some kind of waterproof connector. It's two wire, right? I see various types on Amazon. Or if you never really remove the wheel pilot you could crimp and seal the wires.

    Hey Leslie, don't assume I know anything, because chances are I don't

    Your point seems astoundingly simple. I could just get rid of the plug altogether. It'd take me 5 minutes. *smacks forehead*

    This probably belongs more in the mechanical forum now, but I finally followed through with a "project" and replaced this deck connector with a new one.

    Important thing to note is the power wires coming from the ST-3000 drive motor are brown and blue. Blue is POSITIVE and brown is NEGATIVE. I found advice online that said opposite.

    This involved drilling out the old cable hole to 3/4" and drilling in three new screw holes. First official drilling into the boat while under my ownership.

    The autopilot now starts up right away and doesn't look like it's stuttering for power when performing maneuvers, and I will be able to recalibrate it without minor shorts resetting the control unit every time I use it l.
