I don't know what it looks like but reason I was asking about sitting was in that multi-function switch there is copper terminals and over time they get gunked up with green stuff like what copper will do when it is exposed to dampness and will break connections I just fixed one with this problem and it was bad.

Check this out and you will see what I mean

Thanks I will try to clean those contacts. I think I want to find the control modul because it started working after the bump I had to move switch a lot from high to off.

If it's the muti-fuction turn with the 4 way button on top it's all one unit you have to take top cover and bottom cover off the colum and there is 2 star screws that hold the switch on and 2 plugs to remove then you will see the screws on the body

Another rainy trip guess what intermittent not working. I was hoping that problem would go away. Will have dig into the wipers not working on intermittent only fast works. Will try cleaning contacts in the turn lever still looking for the wiper control mod because they worked one time After hitting a bump. Thanks for any help.

I have your same problem only full wipes.
I got road salt in mine couple years ago most times could clear problem by cleaning the plug feeding the motor with contact spray and dielectric grease but its more than that this time.
There is a wiring plug that enters the motor mount and its necessary to drop the motor mounting to get to that wiring.
Got coach inspected last spring and it passed with the one speed.
You wippers like mine were installed by Newmar even if we have different chassis's.
Its a pain to twist your body and look into this wiring plug with multiple wires.
The coach is retired for this winter and was going to tackle next spring.

I found a loose connection in the plug pigtail adaptor that Newmar uses to connect the wiper motor to the F53 wiring harness. I held it in the working position Ty wrapped and taped then Ty wrapped it to stop it from swinging. All is working now next rainy trip will tell.

Thanks for the info Mike will check it out.
If you clean the plug and use di-electic grease in plug will keep out water.
Also if a rubber bulb molding is placed on upper edge of hood opening will keep out water also off motor and down your air intake tube.
