There was just one problem with Ducky, something new and thus worth sharing.
While on one of their first few shake-down drives, Ducky hit a rain shower, and the Larricks reported that the passenger wiper was not wiping much at all. We don’t give the wipers on these cars much credit, and generally suggest RainX or similar products to best clear the glass. Given the length of this particular trip though, we were determined to improve the wipers as much as possible.
We inspected the blade, which was the usual suspect, but it was the arm that was worn. I was impressed to see that new wiper arms we sell have stronger springs than the worn wiper arm on Ducky. We replaced the arm and problem solved! Still a crappy one-speed wiper system, Rain-X is still recommended, but now, Ducky’s wipers are much better stuck to the glass.
If this is our only problem on the whole drive, we are doing really well (of course they still have another 2000 miles to go)!
