I too have been working this issue. I even chatted with a rep at the show last week. He says they are trying longer blades.
I've tried a few different blades, rain-ex, and nothing seems to help. Although the rain-ex did improve things a bit. I have read that a "helper spring" might assist in puling the arm down on the top. Just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Wiper fuse

Where is the windshield wiper fuse located? Mine decided to blow when I hit the washer button.

Also, would some one be kind enough to send me the proper configuration of the valves on the water system by fresh tank. I thought I had the correct but when I turned the pump on it drained the water on the ground.

Kinda in a quandary since I'm in route to HOU to sell the unit.

Thanks for any help.

Tom

Products | Sure Wipe

I just found these and have ordered a set from Amazon.com.

Cheaper that a new wiper blade, and looks like this might be what the tech rep was talking about regarding adding a helper spring.

Next on the wiper list is to mess around with the motor arm length and get these to sweep to the edge of the window and still park in parallel at the end of the cycle.
I have them sweeping the window to remove blind spots. The trade off is that they are angled up when parked.

Tomspen: On the 24.1 floorplan the low point drains are under the bed on the passenger side. Look at the attached picture.

Valve 1 -- Supply line from fresh water tank to freshwater system -- Open (parallel with line as shown)

Valve 2 -- Fresh water Tank Drain -- Closed (90 degrees to line as shown

Valve 3 -- Cold water system drain -- Closed (90 degrees to line as shown)

Valve 4 -- Hot water system drain -- Closed (90 degrees to line as shown

The windshield wiper fuse is under the dash on the driver's side behind a fuse panel cover (5A fuse-top right I think).

Thanks both of you so much for your quick responses. I'll fix the water line configuration and look for fuse holder. I looked on firewall and did not see fuse holder but didn't look under dash.

Again, thanks for your support.

Tom
