Windshield wipers

I have a 2007 Newmar Kountry Star 3910 Motor Home and have had a lot of problems with the windshield wiper arms breaking off. I need to know how to adjust the linkage between the motor and the wiper arms to properly align the wiper arms.

Yeah, I just started having problems with my Tiffen wiper arms as well. Th thin bar bends and then the wiper goes catywampus. I taped a pen over the bend as a splint on our last trip and haven't found a place to buy a new one.
However, I suspect that it has something to do with lubrication. I think we are supposed to lube the linkage at the pivot points, but I've never heard of anyone doing that. I'm interested in any input on this as well.

I've order a complete set of wiper nozzles and hoses for my pantograph wiper arms from Mill Supply:

http://millsupply.com/pdf/stepvan/wiper.pdf.

They also carry an assortment of blades and single wiper arms as well as the pantograph type. Good prices and fast service. I ordered over the phone.

IIRC, there is an adjustment for arm tension applied to the windshield. Improper tension can cause wiper blade hydroplaning and with too much tension, can cause arm distortion...especially on a dry windshield. Over tensioning can also cause the wipers not to park properly.
