Testing a Simrad TP30.

Recommended Posts

I was gifted a Simrad TP30 tiller pilot in great condition that came with a friends boat.  He sold the boat and never used the tiller pilot but was told it worked.  He gave me the unit and remote.  I got the connector for power and powered it up and it indeed powers on and the motor seems to be ok.  Any way to test this unit without fully installing?  I’d have to cut holes and run wires only to find it isn’t fully functional.  Here is the video of the basic motor test.

What more is there to it than what you did?  It powers up.  The rod moves incrementally when you push the buttons.  Seems like it works to me.  Drill away.

Rather than pressing buttons to make it extend and retract, power it up and rotate it horizontally to ensure that it extends/retracts and see whether you may have to reverse its response for port or starboard operation..
