Thor Motor Coach is recalling 6,561 model year 2014-2015 ACE, Hurricane, Challenger, Daybreak, Miramar, Outlaw and Windsport motorhomes. The vehicles’ windshield wiper systems may have been improperly installed and secured, possibly causing the wipers to fail during use.

One indication of possible failure would be for the wipers to slow down, get entangled, or a shift in the sweep pattern.

We just had our 2014 ACE wipers blades replaced as they just seemed to “chatter” across the screen and not clear the water. Appears as though the problem may have been more than wiper blades.
