Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

On our 2002 Windsor there is just a single nut holding the wiper blades to the arms. Guess yours must be different. Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The windshield wipers are held on to the arm with a locking nut, and a shoulder bolt. You will need two small wrenches of the correct size. Remove the nut , then pull the shoulder bolt out of the arm and wiper. Be very careful not to loose nut or shoulder bolt, they are very hard to get. Your wiper blade will need to have the correct diameter hole in the wiper. Best of luck

It looks like you have gotten some good information. In the future, it would be good if you would put enough information in the subject so people know if they can help you more easily. For example, a subject like "Monoco Windshield Wiper Replacement".

Good luck with the wipers!

Just a side note. Some of the guys on here are adding J hooks to the motor home wiper arms so they can use inexpensive automotive wiper blades. You can find more info with pictures using the advanced search.

I use Michelin blades from Costco. I have to drill the blade up one size and they work
great.

I tried Bosch wiper blades, only to discover that the J hook opening on the blade is 3/8ths wide and the motorhome J hook is 1/2 inch wide. I have read where some have ground the J hook down to fit the 3/8ths inch blade.

Just go to WalMart. Get the blade closest to length you have now. A little shorter is no problem. The bolt will go through the hole in the arm fine. Save yourself several $ over getting any other place. Just my two cents


safe travels

I second the Costco wiper arms. Much cheaper.

Avoid the Goodyear wiper blades at Costco. They deteriorate fast.
