2020 (and later) View/Navion - automatic windshield wipers?

Recently we had the windshield replaced on our 2021 View 24D (based on 2019 Sprinter chassis).

According to the Sprinter documentation, if the Sprinter chassis has automatic wipers - when the wipers are set to one of the intermittent settings, the wipers will turn on only when it's raining - and then turn off.

That's not happening now in our View - and I thought we had automatic wipers working before our windshield was replaced.

For anyone with a 2020 or later View/Navion - do you have automatic wipers (i.e., leave the wipers on one of the intermittent settings, and let the system automatically turn wipers on and off, as needed)?

We have the 2021 model 24V and yes I have the automatic wipers. Yes set to on they will start on their own, adjust the speed based on the amount of rain and stop when the rain stops.
My guess is the sensors were either not re connected after the new windshield was installed or they need to be calibrated. Dose your passive cruise control still work?The sensors are in the same control cluster mounted on the windshield.

The adaptive cruise control is working - it's only the automatic wipers.

I'm guessing the rain sensor is the smaller camera located towards the bottom of the area behind the rear view mirror - and the driver assist sensors are the larger group mounted at the top.

I've sent a note to our Sprinter service (who replaced the windshield) and see if they can get this checked (and fixed) before we leave on our next month-long road trip.
