    ok my wipers need to be serviced as I can hear the motors running but wipers won't move. I really just want to fix the starboard one since access to it seems easier. Since the 1998 sundancer has the aft bedroom I can remove to headliner in that room only to access the wiper motor. My question is how do I go about removing the headliner without messing it up? It seems very solid. Bad picture but this is the aft room where headliner would need to be removed near the door opening. I'll get better pics next time I'm out there. Anyone remove there headliner and have any tips?

    Before you do any of that, pull the wipe off and observe the wiper motor stud. Does it turn? If you hold it with your fingers, does it still turn? Is the brass gear in good shape? Look at the wiper arm "cup" -- it's possible that the wiper arm cup is simply stripped.

    Mine was, so I drilled a hole thru both and inserted a rolled pin...

    Didn't seem to act like a stripped wiper arm but I will surely check. Thanks for the advise!
