Has anyone found a source for 32" blades? I've tried the usual-RV outlets, Camping World and so on. Only place I found blades this size was at a truck stop, but they mount with hardware and mine are the "J-Hook" type. Actually I'd like to find just inserts instead of the entire assembly since mine are fine.

Hi Duffy's Mom. Yes that was us during the smoke season! We are heading south for a long trip (for us)and plan on being in Corpus Christi in February. Are you going to be anywhere between So CA and there? Trying to make sure everything is OK. That's why the new blades.

When and where are you going to be? I know that can only be approximate. We live in Southern California so we're here.

I saw those blades at PPL a few days ago for a mere $42 each. Mine are not THAT bad yet. LOL

I just bought some wiper blades from them. Make sure you know the length of your blades.

O.K. Bud,
I'll be the one to bite...
Since your MH is not listed in their chart, how did you know which one to order??

This was a recent topic on the Yahoo Monaco Group and many of the guys that post there including Les Stallings who posts here use the 28" blades from Wal*Mart, etc. Les said he likes the 28" better because the wind does not float them up off the windshield as bad as the 32" ones.

Hi all,

Here is a possible easy fix for the wiper floating problem. The "Spikerster" posted this on the Newmar forum and it could help many others-- Go here to see it

Thanks Spike-----

Here is a link to AVCO Tru-Vision RV Windshield Wiper Catalog: Tru-Vision

TV8-32 is a "J-Hook" assembly.

TV8 Model line does not appear on any websites, TV8-32 is a 32" J-hook style assembly that is designed to relieve "wind lift". Probably have to call parts supplier to see if they stock them or order them. Mine came via Guaranty RV Service Center Coburg OR, from Northwest Trailer Parts which is one of the largest RV/Trailer parts wholesaler in the Northwest.

Hope this helps someone! Nothing worse than inadequate wipers, especially here in Coastal PacNW.

Spike

Check your local NAPA auto parts store.
I got a set of refills for my endeavour for about $11 each.
Special order - took 4 hours from dropping by with one of the existing blades to the call to come
pick up the refills.

SacsTC;

The only 32" wipers they list are TV6-32. They'll either fit or they won't (!) but it'll have to beat what is presently wiping my windshield.

My coach is comparatively new, but the wiper blades look like they are years old.

And, if they are way out of line, I can always return them.

Bud,
Take another look. They, Tru Vision, list list both a TV6-32 and TV8-32. Mine takes the TV6 and yours uses the TV8. Mine is not the hook type, but has a bracket that straddles the blade and is held together with a bolt. Might it be the differece between the two? Bud, does yours use a J hook? I couldn't determine the difference between the two from the info on their website.
