Does anyone have a source for replacement wiper blades for the large wipers on the one piece windshields on the newer rigs?

Thanks for any help!

Gail,
They are 35 inches long. I need some too. I will let you know what I find out where to get them, incase no one else knows.

Thanks, Dale!

We checked Camping World, but they don't sell long enough blades.

Put wiper blades in find and search column..lots of us had that problem. I contacted most mfgs of blades and ended up with a blade 32 inches I think at napa..they can special order and are spendy.. had to drill out the hole and use 2 teflon washers to make it fit right. good luck.

Why don't you check with a Monaco owner, they have been using single windshields since at least 96

I would try Trico, they have RV, truck and bus wiper blades. I would call them. Can't find a 35 inch blade on the website. Hope this helps. www.tricoproducts.com/index.cfm

Thanks for all of you ideas.

Since "persistent" is my middle name, John & I spent several hours yesterday running around the Pomona area (since we are here now) with Dave & Donna Fernandez, visiting a Napa Truck Parts warehouse, a Prevost service center and others. A big THANKS to Dave & Donna for spending so much time with us to try to solve this problem. Then, I made calls to Guaranty and all of the ex-WRV people I have contact info for. Burk came thru for me!!

The supplier for our 35 inch windshield wipers was/is Diesel Equipment Co. Their website is www.dieselequipment.com. You can call 336-373-8331 and ask for Sean (who gave me permission to share this info), who will take care of ordering and shipping your big ole windshield wipers to your house!
