I have got to give a shout out for Autex for doing such a great job with our wipers and motors.  We changed them from 24 volt to 12 volt, and we got the info to them, and in a week and a half, they had them made and back to us. Awesome job too. We had sent info and parts to AM Equipment, and they kept saying they were working on it, and after 3 months, we gave up on them. We also had our original drivers seat redone, refoamed and reupholstered locally, and it turned out awesome. It was such a nice air ride seat, we hated to do away with it. It was cheap to do also. It is nice when something finally goes right, lol.

Autex are good people.  I bought some wiper motors from IBP a long time ago now.  They bungled the deal completely but Miguel/Autex made everything right.

Miguel was really nice and helpful. Paul, I will post more pictures as soon as I can. I will see if I can get a couple of pics of the inside posted later today. It is nasty weather here today. Here is one pic of the outside, not the best pic. It is hard to take a good one because of reflections.

Ruthi, don't you just hate it when your bus is looking so good and the fresh paint won't let you take good pics because of all the reflecting light. Cheesy

Did they just redo your motor 24 to 12 or supply new one? How much?  I'm thinking about changing mine to 12 volt.    Bob

Bob, they made new ones. I highly recommend them. It was kinda pricey for us, as we had heavy duty motors made, brackets modified, new wiper arms made, wiring harness, switches, sprayers, etc. We told them we wanted it to be the best and turn key, and that is what we got. It would be cheaper for you.  Eddie, I know, just hate it, lol Grin
