Wiper Motor
« on: February 15, 2020, 07:06:16 AM »
I have a issue and wondering if someone can help me.

My wiper motor uses a large magnet, I notice sometimes it will mess with the compass and definitely screws with the Lowrance point 1.

Is there a different style of wiper motor I can use? Maybe a enclosures that can isolate the magnetic field?

Thanks

Todd, that looks easy, has any one tried the shield? Did it work?

Thank you

   Whenever the subject of windshield wipers comes up, I think back of having used mine no more than about twice since 1994.   Goes to show you how carefully I pick my weather, I suppose.  Anyway, if Arima ever builds the boat I want, this will be the wiper I get for it:   https://www.westmarine.com/buy/afi--hand-operated-windshield-wiper-straight-blade--256693:  You think I'm kidding?  Nope!

My experience with the Lowrance Point 1 was that any metal within 20 feet would throw it off.   Could never find that spot on a 17' Arima.

Both my point 1 and point 1AP are mounted on my arch, once installed follow the calibration process....
No issues on my boat.

An hour meter on my wipers would be over 200 hrs at this point.  It is not very often where the weather is cooperative enough and I dont have the bow planted with blue water flying over the top of the boat.

Wipers are like bilge pumps, you may not need them that often, but when you need them, you really, really need them.  And usually when I need them it's too rough to even consider using a manual wiper. 

OP,
Finding a good place for compass on an Arima was a real challenge for me.  Magnetic shielding did not prove to be an effective option in my case.  I had to move mine from the dash to a lower position.  Good luck.

Yachter Yat, I like the wiper blade that is manual. I don't need my wiper that often. I keep Rain X on the wind shield, the reason I want the wiper is in the morning when there is a fine mist.

The Manual wiper would work on both sides of the wind shield. My only issue would be I have to drill another hole under the windshield.

   Fishing Machine:    I always thought mounting that manual wiper at the "top" of the windshield would be a better alternative.  According to the specs, it mounts through a small 7/16" hole.  I don't think drilling through the windshield frame would be a good idea, so fabricating a small mounting plate that could be clamped to the windshield frame might be the way to go.   I suppose it would want to be so that it could be quickly and easily clamped-on and off as needed.   

   One other thing:  Looking at my own, it doesn't appear mounting this way would interfere with the vinyl snap-on windshield.  Looks to me like that small clamp-on bracket could be placed between the snaps without much of a problem.
