Heads up on the Wiper Nuts.

I recently found out that the nuts holding on the wipe blades should be checked periodically. While driving across Missouri during one of their recent downpours the wipers on my '05 Journey dropped to the outside of each side of the windshield. The nut that held the wiper blade arms to the motor drive had loosened and fallen off. We stopped in a small town and search several auto and hardware stores before finding a replacement 9/16 fine thread (24) nut. I also found that the nuts holding the blade arms were also loose. Heads up.

I"m fond of saying we RVers often have a Few Screws loose.

Now... Most of 'em take a #2 Roberson or square bit.. but a few take wrenches

When you put the nuts on, you can use a little lok tight on each one and that will help to keep them tightened up nice and snug.
