Don't call it a 'gator, it's a Ranger

New to this tractor. 2004 CaseIH STX450 Quad with auto steer valve and CaseIH FM750. Pulling a 14ft ripper so this shows up more than on a larger implement. Once engaged the tractor will stay on the line but will slightly wander back and forth. This causes the ripper to move from side to side. Seemed to work ok first 5 rounds in the field and got worse as I went on. Dealer is too busy to get to me. Wondering if anyone knows something that I can change or set differently? Thanks to anyone who can help.
Not that this is any help to you but I have virtually the same combination, an older Quad 450 with a Nav II pulling a 14' CIH 875 for fall tillage. I am using a Trimble 750 as a display. I am using WAAS for a GPS correction source.
The good news is that mine does not wander back and forth. I find that I do need to wait until I've manually steered close to the line before engaging. If I engage too soon, the system will sometimes "jump" to another line. This is partially due to the fact that the auto sense is located at the articulation point and that the implement is relatively narrow. This never happens with the 50' field cultivator that is used for Spring tillage.
I purchased this tractor which included the auto steer at a farm retirement auction. I have not made any changes to any of the settings as I was happy with its behavior.
I believe some change in your settings would improve your situation but I'm not sure what to suggest.
