THOR #11627
Windshield wipers

I have a Thor ace 27.2 and on my last 3 trips my right side windshield wiper has stuck on the left side in front of the driver, the first time I found a nut missing, replaced it, the next time the part the the wiper connects that goes into the hood was loose, tightened it, this time could not find anything wrong anyone got any suggestions

No specific suggestion; from a past experience I had with an suv with limited power due to a lightening strike (no wipers, radio, etc), I discovered the value in Rain x and keep some in the Axis.

You don't state the year but if it's in warranty, call Thor customer service (better than email). I think the arm was not adjusted well causing the wiper to swing too wide. You can lift the arm off and move back one spline. Maybe put a piece of painter's tape on the arm cap and the hood and put an aligning mark on each, as though one line. Remove the arm, move slightly left toward center so your marks are off slightly. Use loctite on the threads to secure the nut. The arm nut may have loosened from the lower nut not being secure.
