Can you get a number off of one you have? Or take one in to a Freightliner shop.
Our 07 has the single windshield and I know we ordered new ones through a truck dealership after taking it in. They are not uncommon in my opinion.

I just replaced them on my Ď03. I took them off and went to Oíreillyís and just matched them up.
Sorry I donít have the numbers with me.
We are on the road.

I have the first 07 mid door APEX and it still has the 2 piece windshield. There are no numbers on the wipers and she. I took it into NAPA today they had no idea what they were a nd said I needed the numbers. There use to be a thread on IRV2 but I can't find it. It has all the info on how and where to get it. Hoping someone familiar with the thread will respond.

Thanks!

If you type this into a google search you will get lots of links to the alpine forum to look at all about wiper arms.

Tris, on my two pice Ď05 windshield I have used a Bosch, I donít know the number, and drilled out of he pin so I could use the mounting bolt. It .works, but I,have never been satisfied with the set up, it seems the wipers are too flimsy and blow around (lift) too much in cross winds.

You can get ahold of AM Equipment in Jefferson, Or, south of Albany. If you have not gotten out of Oregon yet, you can stop in there. If I remember, they no longer have our wiper base and arm, it does not have the washer hose in the base. I bought new bases, arms, and the separate ribbed hose penetrations, last summer. The new arms were supposed to apply a little more pressure on the windows, a 1/2" wider spacing in the arm and bow pivot points.
Downside, these arms do not lock down when pivoting the blades away from the window, (about 45 degree), so they have to be held away from the window and they are in the way when washing windows.
They still do not wipe the window curve at the edge, maybe there is some adjustment I can make.

The old arm is Dyna, and no numbers. My old DS arm is in good shape, you can have it if you like; the PS is broken.

The new arm, AM Eq parts are:
Arms, 301-5310
Base, Pantograph Adapter, 305-1007
Bulkhead Fitting, 313-1017

AM EQ
Phone 541-327-1546

Hope this helps,
Ed

Thank you ALL for your responses!!! Especially those that have specific Information!

I had tried to search IRV2 for the info but had not searched Amazon. Tuesday I went to Amazon & ordered the WET arms and blades ($166.26) & had them Friday w free Prime delivery, Tris put them on Saturday & they appear to work fine. We have not traveled yet w them on as we are still at the Sherwood OR Elks Lodge.

2 Dyno WET arms - 200487N 31.5" (reversible for left and right) $60.95 each
2 Automated HD78-28 Wiper Blades - Series 78, - 28" $22.18 each

Will advise if we have trouble w them driving down the highway next weekend when we leave here. Don't expect to be in any rain for a long time - as OR & CA are having record HEAT! At least they will work well for the new owners if we are successful in selling the coach!!!

That was me, about a year ago, and now I see JL MUNSIL has just posted the name and number of the company. They were great to deal with, and had everything you will need.
