Mine is balanced under power.   No pull either way.  If you do you may have other issues.

Calling Raymarine was my first action and I am waiting for a call back.  But what I really want to know from the group is whether the relatively strong pull to port while motoring is normal or whether neutral helm is normal.  Dave

No- It is smooth by hand.  No stiffness I have noticed.

I was on a long cruise last weekend and we ended up motoring for many hours.   installed a new Raymarine EV1/ST4000+ wheel pilot last winter and this was the first extended use.  I found that it was frequently cutting out while motoring (not sailing).  The unit would simply freeze up and stop steering while the boat drifted slowly off course.  No error on the P70 controller screen until I got an off course warning.  I also noticed the wheel pilot getting warm/hot when this was happening which may be why it cut out.I also notice that while motoring, there is significant pull on the wheel that has to be fought to keep the boat going straight.  Is that normal?  I am guessing that the wheel pilot is overheating due to the power needed to continuously fight that pull?  Thanks- Dave
