Alpine 900 mm wiper blade refills

Know this is an old topic but I'm having a terrible time finding wiper refills for my 35.43-inch wiper blades (2008 Alpine 36 - FDDS). Have found several manufacturers that will sell the entire wiper blade assembly (WEXCO #137360SS; Bosch #3397 018 190 boat/yacht wiper blade or #3391 014 212; Valeo #109385; DOGA Part# 136.2090.GA.04A - Fits arms with a 26.5 mm (1.04") saddle). My wiper assembly is in great shape; just need to replace the rubber insert. Any suggestions? ray

I had a hard time finding ones for a Camelot.
Try AM Equipment. 541-327-1546 or amequipment.com they shipped me a pair overnight.
Good luck
Clark

Try Am Equipment, AM Equipment : 36" (914mm) Heavy Duty Wiper Blade [302-1360] - $49.77 . They have 914 mm wiper blades. Also, Diesel Injection Service, 800 735 9773. They carry Dyna blades up to 40". (On my 2005, Dyna was the OEM blade).

Thanks Jaime & Dave and CHCam42 (Clark): Butch Helland at A.M. Equipment emailed me a schematic immediately and it was a perfect fit for my OEM blades on my Alpine Coach. Two new blades are being shipped to me while I'm traveling. Really appreciate both of your posts. I spent the better part of a day trying to track down something that would work to no avail and AM Equipment's price of $49.76 each was appropriate for the entire blade assembly. Will try to find a way to replace the rubber only the next go around for perhaps 20% of this cost, perhaps through AM Equipment now that I will have their blade assembly, so I can replace the inserts only on an annual basis, but for now, I need good wiper blades. Their part number for the 36 inch blade remains 302-1360. ray

When we needed new wiper blades 2 years ago, I contacted an old WRV employee. He told me the supplier for our 35 inch windshield wipers was Diesel Equipment Co. Their website is www.dieselequipment.com. You can call 336-373-8331 and ask for Sean (if he's still there), who will take care of ordering and shipping your big ole windshield wipers to your house!

When we bought them 2 years ago, we paid $16.70 per each blade assembly plus $30 S&H, so a total of $96.80 for 2 pair delivered. Their part number is BA900.

Hope this helps as another alternative.

When we had to replace the wiper blades on our 2005FDQS. We went to NAPA. Gave them the wiper manufacturer. The NAPA replacement is 60-2880. They installed with out modification.

gjstacy and 1peddler: Thanks for the input. Relative to NAPA, tried them without luck relative to a 900 mm (35.43") wiper blade to replace my OEM 900 mm blade. Relative to Diesel Equipment Company, through their TruVision distributor, they carry wiper blades for hundreds of different coaches including select Alpine models in their 2010-2011 catalog at the following website: http://www.dieselequipment.com/pdf/truvision.pdf However, most were a maximum of 32" blades with "BB" prefixes except for several Monaco, Beaver, and Coachmen coaches that took BA900 blades and some Newmar coaches that took a BA1000 blade that I assume is a 1000 mm (39.37") blade. I will call or email (see contact info below) and see if they still have the BA900 blade for the same price as what the Stacey's got their two sets of BA900 blades for which turns out to be about half the A.M. Equipment price (approx $50 per pair delivered, and maybe less if one orders more than 4 blades at a time versus my approx $100 per pair delivered).

I received and installed the A.M.Equipment blades today and they were an easy install and matched almost perfectly the OEM 900 mm blades I removed (maybe BA900 from Diesel Equipment / TruVision but I didn't see any numbers on the removed blades). The replacement blade assembly did seem slightly lighter weight than the OEM blades I took off. The A.M.Equipment blade assemblies came in plastic sleeves with a label "made in Italy". I didn't inquire of Butch Helland at A.M. Equipment as to where the blade assemblies were made but plan to stop by their shop in OR late this year and see if there is simply a rubber replacement rather than purchasing the entire assembly. ray
