Wiper Motor Failure

Postby ethanbarnett on Wed Mar 27, 2019 6:38 pm

Of course while underway and being used the wiper started to not return properly when off, then it would shorten it's motion, and lastly it just stopped. Starboard side of course.

Is this an ongoing issue with this 2015 model as others have posted? Thoughts?

I had a similar problem with a wiper motor on my boat which decided to turn itself on while stored in my driveway. A search of Tugnuts identified this as a not infrequent problem.

Due to the age of my boat, my Dealer coordinated with Ranger Tugs to have a replacement motor sent.

Fluid Motion put out a bulletin to its dealers regarding this issue. It has to do with the improper wiring of two speed wipers. If you’re interested in a copy, please PM me your email address and I will forward it to you.

Hi Kip
I could use a copy of the wiper service bulletin as well. The starboard wiper on my new 29s has an arc of 12” max.
