    I don't know if you've checked already but check around the roll cage in the back under the padding and a lot of times manufacturers will just include the wire harness for all the different hook ups so your pigtail might already be there to hook into just a thought. But otherwise you should definitely able to run a hot tub without the wiper been hooked up Good luck on your project

    Karl is correct, the wires should be there as should the wiper fluid hose.
