I use 28s which I buy from Costco for about $10. The wiper arms on the motorhome are too big for the fittings supplied but I drill out the center rivet and use a nut and nyloc bolt. Works fine for mine

Trico - they have the right size and right attachment for your wiper arm. Select RV in the first dropdown and go from there. Most all MH listed.

Even though our coach came with 32" blades we have always replaced them with 28" Michelin blades from Walmart - much cheaper, clears the windshield very well, and less drag on the motor.

And for a slightly different question (maybe):
Does anybody have a source for REFILLS ??
That is, just the rubber part, none of the metal.

On my Coach. most anywhere.. They are right at the limit of what I find in the Auto Department of "Superstores" or on the rack at placces like Auto-Zone.

1 inch longer and I'd be into truck stops.

Fact. If yours are 1" longer than mine. odds are you can "Downsize" an inch and never notice

I do sometime have to modify the mount a bit. (IE drill a hole larger)


Home is where I park it.

Costco or Walmart for my DP. Amazing how proud the RV dealers are of the same blades.

Go to Walmart, or somewhere similar, and get a slightly shorter blade for a lot less money.
You won't notice the difference in length.

There are not many options is the small town I live in so I get mine online at wipers123.com. I have been emailing to jeff.jost@8020worldwide.com. It has been a while since I ordered any and I don't remember the price but I am pretty sure that it was way less than $50.

Even though my coach came with 32" wipers all of the size charts I can find call for 28" and in the past I have had to argue with them to get them to send the 32". I guess that they have had too many returns from customers ordering the wrong thing.
