Good morning! My name is ***** ***** I am a Master Certified RV Technician and have been in this business nearly 20 years and on this site for over 12 years. I have responded to over 70,000 questions, so there is not a lot I haven't seen or heard about.

Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question here! It has been crazy busy these last few days. I used to have an RV repair facility and worked on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated!

Thank you for bringing your question to us here at Just Answer and I am sorry to hear that you are having a problem with your wipers.  I should be able to assist you with this issue.  Randall

I can tell you this is most often the wiper motor relay or the switch itself.  Use a small digital multimeter like the one in the attached photo link for this testing.  About $20 or so at most local hardware stores and easy to use.  It is very helpful here to have a good chassis manual so you have the wiring diagrams and colors.  Try Faxon Automotive Literature or Lloyd's Automotive Literature for this.  I hope this proves helpful here and points you in the right direction.  Please get back to me again later if you need additional assistance with this issue as we have no time limits on any of our questions.  Thanks!  Randall
