Angry Windshield wipers moto/linkage spline

We have an '05 Winni. Adventurer Class A, gas.
Wiper linkage gets out of kilter, wipers eratic as spline of motor and linkage slip. Linkage realigned so wiper blades positioned properly, spline bolt tightened and all o.k. for awhile and then all goes awry again. Suspect it is a soft metal on the serrated spine. Would appreciate feedback from another who has had this problem and has ideas on a fix.
Appreciate that worse scenario is replacement of motor and or linkage, a pricey proposition, but hope there might be alternatives out there.

We had the same problem. I removed the wiper arm and put a strip of emory cloth around the motor spline and replaced the arm. It has worked for several years.
