windshield wipers

We own a 98 30ft. Cutter. My question; is the windshield wiper controller
made by Chev or has Airstream installed an afermarket unit. When interupt
is selected the wipers stop at random and do not park. Our 98 S10,
I assume has the same system, wipers park. Could this be a controller problem?

I don't this grip can be solved, but the lack of a trip odometer is a pain.
I wonder why either Chev or Airstream did not install a trip meter at
manufacture. Trip meters have been around since at least 1965.

The park problem is most likely in the motor. The trip odometer can contribute to speddometer/odometer problems after a lot of miles. IIRC, the instrument cluster is the same as that on commercial trucks, thus the lack of a trip odo. If it ain't there, it can't break.

Thanks for the info. I will start troubleshooting the motor.
We have spent the last 5 months in Gulfport Ms. working with Habitat for
Humanity and are now on our way North and hope to visit Maine and the
Northeast this summer.

I have a odometer on my 2003 396XL. Maybe they changed it in later models. I have drove quite a few trucks and mobile cranes that did have an odometer in them. The mechanics used them for oil changes, preventive maint, etc.
