I had the same problem with the meridian flip last night. I did have reset mount model after a meridian flip enabled. Kstars log showed nothing but guide data. What would be the best logs to diagnose this problem?

You may want to make sure /usr/bin/rfcomm0.sh is executable.
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/rfcomm0.sh.

This is how I got the Shoestring Astronomy bluetooth adapter for Eqmod to start automatically. I have not tested on Raspberry pi but this shouild work for any systemd based distro. Please keep in mind that I am not an expert and that this includes this first systemd service file that I have written. I would be delighted if anyone can improve this.

1). First I created a file in /etc/modules-load.d/ to enable the rfcomm module to load at boot.

/etc/modules-load.d/rfcomm.conf

# Load rfcomm at boot
rfcomm

2). Then I made script and placed it in /usr/bin/

/usr/bin/rfcomm0.sh

#! /bin/sh
rfcomm bind rfcomm0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

Where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is the MAC address of the bluetooth adapter.
Don't forget to make script executable.

3). Lastly I wrote a service file and placed it in /etc/systemd/system/.

/etc/systemd/system/rfcomm0.service

[Unit]
Description=Eqmod port

[Service]
Type=idle
ExecStart=/usr/bin/rfcomm0.sh

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

I enabled the service with sudo systemctl enable rfcomm0.service
rebooted
Now I can connect to Eqmod Mount through port /dev/rfcomm0
