Anyone having problem with their passenger side windshield wiper malfunctioning and stripping off?
Ours has been in the shop twice and will be going in again after losing our wiper again during a downpour. Thinking maybe a bad design? Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue so we can tell if it is an isolated problem or?
Other than this issue, the coach is great with an awesome floorplan!

Hi Bob and welcome to the website. Just recently someone had a similar problem. Do a search using the words, "Windshield Wiper problem" and I'm sure something will pop up. You can do this by clicking on the word find up above in blue.

We have the same coach and we have not had that problem and we have over 6K miles on it. We have driven in rain several times but never in anything really serious. We also really enjoy the coach.

I think my coach uses the same wipers and we had a heck of a time geting them right. It took three trips to the dealer and one to the factory but after replacing nearly everything in the loop it's ok now.

Had the same problem. Took it to the factory and they had to shorten the control arm to make it work properly. Apparently they used the wrong part when it was assembled.

We had a problem where the driver side wiper went past the end of the window when using the wipers and traveling down the road above 25 MPH. The fix was to shorten the control arm like LHyzer stated. The factory told my dealer that this was a known problem.
