Windshield Wiper Failure Troubleshooting
The windshield wipers stopped in mid-stroke on my 2011 Newmar Dutch Star yesterday. I pulled over and noticed that the VIP Control Module for the Smart Wheel was "clicking" and that the mini-circuit breaker for the wiper motor was hot. I pulled the mini-circuit breaker and the clicking stopped as well.
I assume the problem is probably the motor itself, causing the mini-circuit breaker to cycle and overheat. The motor seems to be a common one, Tru Vision ZD1631 as evident by many Chinese supplies on the internet, but I can't find an on-line dealer by searching. If necessary I can buy it from Newmar. Second possibility is a problem with the Smart Wheel switches or control module.
My question is whether another forum member has had a similar problem and has any troubleshooting,repair, or supplier suggestions.
