Wiper problem with 99 Fleetwood Southwind

I can't get the wipers to return to their "normal" position when not in use. I am driving a 99 Fleetwood Southwind. Position should be center of coach but they are stopping at far left and right. Any suggestions? I'm new to RV'ing.

The park position is wired into the motor. 99% of the time when you have a problem with the wipers not going into the park position, it is the nut on the wiper motor that is loose. Find the wiper motor. loosen the nut on the wiper arm. Place the wipers in the parked position and retighten the nut.

I just got caught in a bad thunderstorm and the right wiper went over the right side and stayed there and the driver side parked in the middle of my windshield.
the RV shop only charged me 62.50 to fix and retime, so it can't be much of a problem to fix it. NO parts just labor.
