Even the Rudder Horns on your RV10 are aluminum?  I has been a while since I worked on an RV 6, but I think I recall their horns to be steel???  I was thinking the RV 10 would have a similar design.

My rudder and elevator parts are all aluminum - no iron or steel. Also I do not have auto pilot, strobes or any electronic whizzes mounted back there. I really think someone ( not me ) stored  the cables on the DC welding machine while it was being used causing them to become highly magnetized.

As an aside I had to change most of our Air National Guard rudder cables on the F-106 way back when. The old cables would become magnetized by the electronics mounted near them. The full timers would save the dirty or labor intense jobs for the part timers ( me ). We had to replace the cables with a finer stainless alloy that would not become magnetized. I think the cables were about 3/8" in diameter and the airplane was very long. Not an easy job.
