“Aw, c’mon, Uncle Joel!”

I’ve been gone from the cabin a lot this week, from Saturday morning. Morning and afternoon I take off for an hour and a half or two hours, up and across the plateau and then up T&S’s mesa to take care of their dogs and plants, either using T’s pickup (while it rained every afternoon, since the Jeep doesn’t have windshield wipers) or the ebike once the sky cleared on Tuesday. In either case, Tobie had to stay behind. He complained about it yesterday afternoon: This morning he outright rebelled.

So yeah: Enough was enough. This morning we took the Jeep.


Which is all he wanted.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    That’s a movie sequel isn’t it? A Rebel With Claws…

    Hey champ, what is wrong with the wipers? I was just at the LKQ Pick a Part earlier this week. Plenty of jeeps there.

    I truly have no idea.

    Aww. Put on the thinking hat and dig out the multi meter. Trace back from battery to fuse, fuse to switch, switch to motor.(maybe a relay then motor) Where the volts no longer show up, whatever is immediately downstream is the culprit.

    My bet is either a bad fuse, bad wiring connection, the motor is bad or the stalk switch. If the stalk switch, bypass that completely, put in a toggle switch and wire to motor.

    If you can pinpoint the issue, I can send you the parts.

    Nothing above you don’t already know I am sure.

To the stake with the heretic!
