Linear Rudder Position Sensor
I recently had my hydraulic steering seals replaced and came back to my unit with the rudder position sensor disconnected from the ram. I reconnected the end to the ram, but noticed the seal a the end of the sensor was disconnected.

Is there some sort of fluid that needs to be in the sensor, or can I simply tighten the seal?

RE: Linear Rudder Position Sensor
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Travis,

Q. Is there some sort of fluid that needs to be in the sensor, or can I simply tighten the seal?
A. No. Raymarine's rotary rudder reference units are not fluid filled. They are however sealed to prevent water intrusion.
