I still think it is the length of the cable. Has anyone tried to measure
current and voltage when under load e.g. when all four elements are
being adjusted?  I think there is a voltage drop, which is why the
controller malfunctions.

Wire has resistance and a lot of wire has more resistance which has to
be overcome.

Have the Steppir folk actually tried driving a four element with 500
feet plus of wire?

Several mentions were made that it was related to the 500 feet of
cable, but SteppIR's engineers say the longer cable would actually help 
reduce the load, so cable length has been ruled out.

I dont know how the longer cable would help.
I would look at the size of the cable. SteppIR makes two size, one for
short runs and one for long runs.
