We were just putting up some "Christmas" (not xmas) lights and my son Tim turned to me and said, "Dad, what's up with those wiper arms?" Looking over I saw the wiper arms parked in the middle of the sweep in the windshield and that didn't look right.

So since I've had this problem before - all I did was open the hood, disconnect the modular connector to the wiper motor, and plug the modular connector back in rocking it as I pushed it in.

Tim turned the key on and the wipers parked themselves in the appropriate place, parallel on center and that was that.

Closed the hood, wash up and finish putting up the lights!

It's always fun playing with your motorhome even when your putting up Christmas lights.

I recently noticed the grommets on the secondary wiper arm post (non-moving) were badly deteriorated (where the post goes thru the front skin). I replaced the (foam rubber??) grommets with neoprene washers (Ace Hardware, 40 cents) & RTV glue. When I removed the nut holding the secondary arm to the stationary post (to slip on the washers), I noticed there was zero lubrication where the arm rotates. So I applied some silicone grease on each of them & hope it works.

Didn't look at lube on the main wiper arms. Yet.
