Replacing Windshield Wiper Control Module

Has anyone replaced a windshield wiper control module on a Thor Serrano 34M? If so can you please give me an idea as to where it is located. Wipers will start out on low speed but if it starts to rain harder and you switch to high speed it will not return to low speed. It will only operate on high speed from that point on. It will reset once unit is off for an hour or so. Any help will be greatly appreciated. New control module on the way. Thanks.

There are others here:
Serrano 31x
Looking for info from 2012 Serrano owners

Sometimes it is best to reach-out to them, because iRV2 has gotten rather large making others hard to find.

To Private Message another iRV2 member, click on their ID on the left side of their post and select "Send a Private Message."
They will be notified that they were contacted as soon as they return to iRV2.

Best luck.

Bad Wiper Harness

I had the same problem with a 2011 Serrano 33A. The problem was not with the control unit, but with the wiring harness that connects to the wiper motor. After filing a complaint with NHTSA I got an E-Mail from Thor stating that some wiring harness were not correct and the thermal overload due to the incorrect wiring harness was preventing the wipers from running in anything but high speed, which by passes the thermal overload. Check with Thor technical support. I've also talked to other Serrano owners with the same problem.

wiper works great on all settings....for a couple minutes. Turning key off/on they reset and go a little while more. Thor says replace "wiper relay" ( I replaced the control module) Where's the relay? Can't find it. Any other ideas? Thanks

Though our chassis is different than yours, I had the exact same problem. While driving in the rain, water was getting into the wiper motor wiring connector inside the engine compartment above the engine compartment access door. Dis-connect this plug and dry it out(WD-40). Re-connect and test. To keep moisture out, tape it up with electricians tape and if possible, locate it up higher inside the compartment where it is more protected from driving rain entering openings at the front of the RV.

my control module is inside down low next to the steering column. Mine got wet from a windshield leak and it went crazy. One I traced the trouble found the water logged control module and dried it with a heat gun.

Fixed the leak and put aluminum HVAC tape over the module to prevent such a future occurrence.
