Well, I did get the Wiper arm replaced (must be the worlds most expensive - 135$), but even after getting another audio head unit, I still get nothing.

This is not your problem but might save someone a headache.

In the 8 years of owning our new Endeavor I assumed the radio switch worked the same way as all of my previous rv's. That is, the switch would use chassis batteries in one position and house batteries in the other. Of course there is the second on/off switch in the bedroom. Now folks, don't try this at home. I am actually a highly qualified technician but sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees.

After completely remodeling the dash area, installing a new radi, and making some major modifications the radio would not work when the power switch was in one position. The schematics I have for that part are inadequate so finding the fuse that I had blows was difficult. The only fuse I could find was in the bedroom and it was ok of course.

Finally digging out my toner I began chasing wires. The only place I could chase them to was near the fuse panel in the bedroom. This did not add up and I was about to open the cabinet to chase wires when my eyes fell on the bedroom switch for the radio. Why this switch exists is strange but after two hours of chasing wires all it took was a simple flip and the radio came alive.

Sheesh, just got embarrassed but did enjoy teaching my techno grandson how to use the toner and eat some humble pie. I now know a bit more about my coach.

Heck, while inside the dash I found the long lost "CB" pre-wire power connector. Buried deep in the rats nest where they just threw wires in a pile.

Now is a good time to replace that old factory radio. The new ones have so many more features. I was setting up mine when the phone rang. Touching the large phone button connected me to my wife. It worked great. you
This thing will connect to two phones. Android or Apple and you can control it via a remote application.
