    Went to Tahoe for this fresh powder. Friday morning I am getting ready to travel back to Bay Area, the overnight snow on my truck was like 8-10" high. I start to clean the snow and left the engine running to warm up the truck. I turned "on" the wipers only to find out that the windshield wasn't as clean as I toughed. After one or two rotations they quit working. My mind goes blind, I am thinking where is the fuse for the wipers, do I have any? etc. I left the engine running and went inside to read the BOOK to find where is the location of the fuse. Red the book and come back down to find out that the wipers worked just fine. WTF? Is there any thermal self reseting breakers on this truck? Or the motor itself has an internal overload?
    Now it works like nothing happened.
    Thanks and take care
