Workhorse wiper controls

I have a 2005 Pace Arrow with a 8.1 Workhorse Chassis.
The wipers will only work on High and stop as soon as I turn the switch to intermittent. They do stop when turned off.
Any suggestions other than an RV dealer?

Check the plug to motor under hood may have corrosion clean up and protect with di-electric grease.
Mine are stuck on high picked up salt last winter will need to pull motor to check wire connections on motor for shorts.
Had to pull engine starter last spring because of salt shorts on terminals.

Sounds like a problem with the wiper switch. The wiper switch is part of the chassis, so any Workhorse service center ought to be able to fix it. An RV dealer will probably just take it to a WH shop anyway.

I also had this problem, and found a wiper module (this had little lights and "PRND12") on it. This module is located at the bottom of steering column on my 2006 Pace Arrow. It operates the wipers, and must have something to do with the transmission...My problem was having just high speed. I could shut off wipers, but they would not return to home position. After replacing this module, wipers/washers worked perfectly for about 5 hours of use, then would not shut off. Luckily, I retained the old module and installed it so the wipers would not be on all the time. I am now waiting for a replacement module. Although wipers only used 5 hours on replacement part, it was a year interm so I guess no warranty..Part cost about $100.00 and can be installed quite easily..just unplug connector.

You might need to check out your state's consumer protection act or consumer protection code.. THere is a federal guideline, the Uniform commercial code, upon which most states have based their consumer protection laws.

Since I'm nt a lwayer I can not give you advice, save to check it out.. When a warrnty reads "you may have other rights which vary from state to state" they are NOT kidding.. that is an absolute fact.. A UCC lawyer can explain in detail, I can not. (NOTE: it's not will not, it's can not, I have not the ability, I only have one state's laws on my hard and wet drives)
