Title: Little Xmas Wiper Upgrade
Post by: cohosalmon on December 24, 2017, 11:08:03 AM
Thought I report about a little upgrade I made today in case someone has a similar taste. It always annoyed me that my wiper only operates at full speed or upon one touch activation. I wanted a timer/delay like I have in my car. A while ago I found at a garage sale a wiper pulse switch. Was pretty easy to follow the wiring diagram so I installed this yesterday. Works very well, now I can set my wipers from full speed to once per 30 sec and infinitely in between. Merry Christmas.

Some of the Hewes guys are installing this intermittent wiper switch on their boats.  Pretty cost effective, and the guy who have them seem to like them:

That looks like a pretty easy upgrade. Wonder if that would work on my 16 :shrug9:
