Hit the wiper arm where it joins the shaft and tap the motor with a plastic or rubber mallet. Lots of times when the motor home sits for extended periods without the wipers being used they will develop a spot on the wiper motor armature causing them to stick. Worth a try.

Thanks!!! We are home now. Strangely enough they started working againand its a good thing as we drove in the rain for several hours after it looked like it would clear up. Will check fuses tomorrow. Heck with the rough road we drove through New Mexico (491 from Shiprock to Gallup) I'm surprised anything still works!!

Mel thank you!!! As a matter of fact it had been sitting about two months and today was the first time we tried to use them. Didn't need them on this trip until today.
