Mike, You were so helpful with my generator problem, I think I'll try to "push my luck" and ask another question. My Scenic Cruiser is on a Ford Super Duty chassis. When I turn the windshield wipers "on" they will not turn "off". If I stop and turn the key "off", the windshield wipers stay "off" until I turn them "on" again, then they will not turn "off". I replaced the multi-function switch on the column but that did not fix the problem. Any ideas on this one? Ken

I'm not mike, but I'll take a shot at your problem anyway. There is a switch on your wiper motor called a "park switch". I suggest that it has failed. Keep us posted.

Thanks for the info. I'll be working on the problem tomorrow and will let you know what I find. What a great source of information this site is!! Regarding the previously discussed remote generator problem, the previous owner told me he had never been able to start the generator from inside the coach. He owned it for over three years. If only he had been aware of this web site. Thanks again. Ken

Check your wiring to your wipers there is a plug to the motor it may have to much silicon in the plug causing the contacts to have a poor connection within the plug.---"007"

We have an issue with our Windshield Wiper control. We have the W22 and it has a mist function, low and high settings and about 5 delays between.

The high and low settings are the same speed and the mist function does nothing. The two lower delays work.

So what I am wondering is if anyone knows where the relay is or what may be the problem with this. The wipers also stalled in the middle of the window and after about 3 min started to work again.

I checked all the nuts for tightness and they are fine.

I called the local Workhorse repair shop and they said I would have to leave it and then they would see if it was a workhorse issue or Winnebago, they said it depends if it has been altered by Winnebago?

We live in the Ventura County area of California,

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Like I said on a Newmar post check your gnd. post for loose gnd. wires, it is located under your front bumper. It will have about 5 white gnd. wires on it. Remove them an clean apply elect. silicon grease, reconnect an tighten the nut. These gnd's feed fuse panels, cruise control, display panel, wipers etc.---"007"

Interesting about the wiper park switch/ground. I have had that problem with my Dolphin/W22 since I got it and Workhorse has never been able to figure it out. On my coach it only happens after prolonged driving in wet weather, which suggests something has to soak though before the problem occurs. Maybe something leaks enough current to make my "ground" less grounded...

On mine, I also cannot change wiper speed once the problem occurs.

This clue will give me something to investigate tomorrow!

Make them change the delay module, That is a known problem and that got me going. N/C and only took 1 1/2 hours while I waited. The work was done by Cal Pacific 800-881-1159 in Ventura CA

Same thing happened on my W22-Dolphin LX. Check the plug assembly where it goes into the wiper motor. On my coach it was hanging down where road spray could get to it. The back of this plug should be sealed. I used silicone calk and no more problem.

Here's the latest on my windshield wiper problem. I disconnected the wiring harness from both wiper motors. I disconnected the multi-function switch on the column. I could find no loose connections and no broken wires. I reconnected everything and now the wipers work. I really don't know what I "fixed" but perhaps removing the harnesses and reconnecting them "fixed" a loose connection that I never could really see. Anyway, thanks to everyone who offered help and if it fails to function in the future, I'll be back asking for more help. Ken and Faye

It could be that you have plug contacts that have been oxidized from the age of your coach. This will happen just by time an being exposed to the elements. You can clean the plugs with a good contact spray cleaner, also if you have electic steps an if it has a plug, something else to clean, because of salt from roadway.---"007"
