Just figured out a thoughtful wiper feature

    I've been wondering for a while now why my wiper stalk does not have a mist "one-wipe" function. Those times when you just want one quick wipe, I hate having to twist the stalk on when the rain sensing wipers module is not actually sensing the very light sprinkle on the windshield. And then tonight I realized that if I push the end of the stalk in briefly-not long enough to activate the washers-it will just do one wipe. Very cool. Is there anything else about this truck I don't know about?

    Thanks for that Muddy, that's a new one on me. I'll have to try to remember that next time I need it. :D

    Did you get your package?

    It's in the owners' manual. Read the part about stability control also. It's good to know how to turn it all off if you are trying to get out of a slippery place, because it applies brakes.

    I think it has been there for a while but I'm glad it's in your hands. I knew you were traveling so I wasn't sure if you had someone checking mail. :)

    My 2002 explorer is like that, too... I really wish there was a similar feature for the rear.

    Andy, yes sir, we haven’t checked mail for months. I knew my wife was flying to Michigan for a weekend so she checked while she was there. She didn’t want to fly back to Portland with them so she left them there and I’ll
    get them when I finally go home in December.
