Where the heck is my windshield washer?

I was adding a gallon of antifreeze to my '93 22' Winnie Warrior the other day when I noticed the reservoir for the windshield washer. The previous owner had added fluid to it. I examined the wipers and noticed there was a hose going up the shaft but it ended at a piece that seemed to have a cap on it. The cap didn't want to be removed. I went inside and started searching for a control to activate the washer. I couldn't find any control anywhere! It's as if the coach came with most but not all of the washer system installed. Any ideas?

They usually used an aftermarket washer which was an add on.Try on the turn signal stalk. Push in , lift up, twist or some form there of. Not hard enough to brake it though, in case it is not there.

Thanks for the prompt response George. The turn signal stalk is the prime suspect however twisting it activates the wipers. Pushing it in sets the cruise control.

Any extra buttons on the floor by your feet?

Not that I noticed however I didn't look real close. There is floor mat that I'll be lifting up and checking. The floor area never occurred to me.

I like to never found mine, it was on the round knob on the dash. It's a 92 Eagle so may not be the same. But I'm not so sure I didn't have hubby replace a washer switch that didn't need replaced.

Try twisting the end of the stalk in the opposite direction from turning the wipers on.

What chassis do you have?


ETA: nevermind. I'm sure it's a Chevy. The year before they were made on a Toyota, weren't they? Being on a Chevy chassis, ChasA has the right idea, doesn't he?

I finally found it today. Mounted on the stalk is a chrome interval switch for the wipers to run intermittently. It has a tiny slide switch on its top edge. Once upon a time there were markings there identifying its other purpose which is to activate the windshield washers. Those markings are now gone but a few traces barely remain of a spray picture. What with wiper controls, cruise controls, interval settings, washer controls, etc. that one little stalk does everything but drive the coach! Thanks a lot everyone. I appreciate the help.
