AMAZING .... I did the very same thing to mine about a year ago. It works fine and now I can buy regular blades for far less than any of the RV store bandits want.

I second DMS110 above for just the rubber blade refill pairs at about $7 at Advance Auto. I've been using them on all of my vehicles for years here in Florida. There are three varieties; be sure to get the correct one. They are name brand quality (maybe Trico or equivalent). They work perfectly and last a long time. The refilling is easy. The correct length is achieved by cutting the long refill rubber blade.

PaulaG - Sorry for such a delay. I took pictures and have tried multiple times to insert them into replies on this and other threads. Wasted 2 hours this time. Even tried to get tech support help but couldn't get to them. I've actually given up posting much here because of that frustration over the last year. Pictures are so useful...wish I knew how others do it!

Presuming yours is the same as mine, there are two screws on the wiper arm near the tip which hold the wiper blade on. Remove those two and the whole blade comes off. The Anco adapter fits in it's place with the "J" side facing the glass. I used the 2 new screws that came with it; one of mine was chewed up. Once the adapter is in place, just snap in any standard wiper of the length you want.

Again I apologize for no picture. Perhaps someone can explain to me what I'm doing wrong?

This is what I have been doing for 8 years. Works perfectly fine.

You can also buy an adapter from Anco that screws on like the wiper and allows the use of standard automotive blades of the hook type Anco part number is 48-17 I mail ordered mine from Summit racing

I needed to replace mine on my 82 when I bought her and I had a heck of a time finding them. I finally found some from a Napa store 300 miles from home. I need to replace them again (almost 5 years) so I'm back to the problem of finding them...

Another Question,
My 99 Deville has a sprayer towards the bottom of the arm.
So the windshield is sprayed not just a stream in the middle of the viewing area. Any ideas if there is one made for my MH. While looking at it yesterday I would like to find the whole Arm Assembly that will cover more area and have a longer blade.
