VW Camper Family

A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

Anyone doing anything to your Camper this week-end. I am trying to get my wipers working, (seems to be an important item with winter here), and trying to find the wires for my light over the table. It hasn't worked since I bought it. Chime in with your project, now or future.

First project is to install new brake pads on the left front side, to match the right front side that I just did. This should take about 30 minutes once I get to it. What is going on with your wipers?
I think its a wire issue not a wiper motor issue. I will find out tomorrow. I am keeping my fingers crossed. I really want to find my way to a camping gtg without running of the road.

If you lay on your back on the passenger side floor you get a pretty good view of the motor and wiring. I would check fueses and grounding first.
They haven't been working, I traced it to the connection from wiper motor to wiper switch and 2 of the wired were crossed causing the fuse to blow (what a sound!!!) Anyway, they are working but getting the wires down and working through the mess is unbelievable. The previous owner did not take much care to re-arrange the. I am finding out that the PO didn't take care of much. Oh well..... On Thanksgiving morning there is a peace of mind that wipers work...plus the wonderful blessing of a great family to be with today...Happy Turkey day (for those who do turkey)..
Happy Thanksgiving Day

I'm going to install front shocks. The rears were a breeze but the fronts have been giving me fits. So I'll try again Sat or Sun.
Larry,

I had the exact same problem with my wiper motor wires. Fixed it. Now they move at about 1"/second. I hope Rain X works well.
