Jamie,

I see the Axis/Vegas is not mentioned. Does that mean no problems...or just not enough problems? After giving our big windshield a coating of RainEx the blades seem to slide across much easier with no problems...yet

I don't think this is for Axis/Vegas as our wipers work. These are for the larger units that have had complete wiper failure (there have been a few mentions of this on the forums here).

As far as I've read the worst us Axis/Vegas owner's have seen is the wipers not being properly aligned (and the early washer motor failures back in '14 and '15).

Great, one less (potential) problem.

We have a 2014 Tuscany and just last month on a trip during the rain the left wiper arm just flew off. I wonder if thor will cover that?

wiper washer motor

took our 2014 windsport in for inspection on friday and the windshield washer motor failed to work. we checked the fuse and that looked fine.could this be part of the same recall ? the technicians could hear no noise coming from the pump. called camping world for an appointment and they can get us in for may 10th , but they no longer allow you to drop off the night before . you must be at the shop by your appointment time.
i will call thor tomorrow and ask .

Thor wiper recall

Somebody asked me why 2016's not included in models recalled for windshield wiper problems. Easy - almost nobody with a 16 notified NHTSA. You can't always "let somebody else" do it. I know the was enough owners with the same problem.

Wiper recall

Iíve got a 2016 challenger 37gt. My wipers have been over wiping and sticking up on the body of the rv. When you start them up they will not stop until you turn off the engine. How can I find out if there is a fix for mine or a recall?

A simple web search for "Thor wiper recall" should get you the below result among others:

https://www.rvtravel.com/thor-recall...stalled-wrong/

A second web search for "does my vehicle have any outstanding recalls" should get you this NHTSA link as the first result:
