Mike, Newmar should have those in stock, as I don't think they change designs or types much.

I just stopped at the shop to see where we stand on the motor and the parts guy said he had to go thru White Horse Rv in Jersey but they should have it on Monday.I just hope it is the motor as the problem is on and off, but I can't live with that.I can't see the linkage bars having a problem.

Hi Mike,
Before the dealer installes the motor look and see how it will be installed. If the wires coming out of the motor are on the top, please consider having the dealer call Newmar tech support. I had to have my motor replaced. The reason was that water was getting in the motor via the opening for the wires. The Newmar tech filled this opening with sealant. Then he installed the motor.

Wiper motor replaced all seems well.Service center had to get motor from Newmar who had a fast turn overtime but they don't tell you that they use a redesigned motor which makes it so the linkage bar has to be modifed as the new motor is much heavyer and the shaft is larger also a new style wiring harness. The tech had to drill and taper the hole in the linkage so as the shaft will fit. I think Newmar could of told the tech this in advance so you would have the option of replacing the linkage bar with new type instead of playing with the Mod.(time is money)
Well we will be off to Shelburne VT this thurs. so all is good.
