Wiper switch

Has anyone rewired their wiper switch to use the Ford steering column actuator?

I guess the wipers aren't on the column? That would suck!

Why would Thor change this from the original Ford switch/configuration? It's on the factory stalk on my ACE. Are you sure this wasn't a "hodge-podge" repair for a broken switch?

I can confirm No
"hodge÷podge" here boss. Wipers are controlled by a Old Radio Shack NOS Switch. It's inconveniently located on the dash.

What coach are you dealing with? My 2013 Thor A.C.E.’s wiper controls are also on the turn signal stalk.

The Axis is on an E-350/450 stripped chassis while the ACE is on a F-53 stripped chassis. Entirely different wiring harnesses for different chassis.

But on a standard E350/450 steering column is the control for the wires just like on the F53:




So why is it moved off the steering column to the dash on the Axis/Vegas??
