Camelot wiper blades

I cannot locate replacement 32 inch wiper blades that fit my 09 Camelot 42KFQ. Stopped at 5 RV supply stores and one place came close to fitting, but not close enough.

The J-hook will slide into the wiper but not latch. See pic. The new wiper blade is wider than my J-hook, and the latch point is off by about 1/4 inch.

Switch to 28" blades -- I have a 07 Camelot & 28`s do just fine -- And they only cost $8.00 a pair from Costco -- Or, go to NAPA Auto Parts & pay $50.00 -- William Willard

What brand are your wipers?
The 28" blades here in the Yuma stores had the same issue. The mount for the J-hook was too narrow and would not latch. Will try your suggestion and some auto stores.

Yep. Has the "J" hook.
To keep your wipers lasting longer, place a small block of wood between your blades metal arm and the glass so that the rubber doesn't lay on the glass. It will keep the rubber blade from bending in the upper position. I do this when the RV is not in use for some time.

Individual. These are the most robust blades I have ever seen. In Yuma RV stores, ones that did NOT fit were $65 each.

Go to the site. The cost is for one blade. Yes expensive, but, what are you going to do.
Remember my tip above. It will make your blade last allot longer.

Instead of the block of wood, try 30" of foam pipe insulation. Keeps the sun's uv off the blades and cheap.

Anything is better than letting them lay on the glass. The heat of the sun bends them out of shape. The tennis ball is what I used, but, I don't have any just yet.
