This is the RV wiper catalog. It shows a TV8-32 for an 06 Diplomat on the very bottom of page 20. Then do a Google search on TV8-32 and a number of vendors come up. All are selling the same wiper at various prices.

blades

Don't have any first hand knowledge but have been considering purchasing these. scrublade.com they don't show a 32" blade on their website, but they emailed me that they now stock them. You would have to call for a price.

You can find 32 inch wiper blades at Camping World. They run about $30.

Fine and dandy on all these 32" wiper blade sources, but can anyone point me to a source for the refills ? There's one heck of a difference between replacing an entire set of blades, and just the refills. Unfortunately, so far I have not been able to find a 32" blade re-fill for Trico, TrueVison, or whatever.....

Ed,
I have not been able to find a refill blade. I've looked and looked but not luck at all. Hopefully, someone has found a source. Major ripoff buying an entire blade.

When I went shopping for blades, I could not find any that would fit. Seems that the wiper arm on ours is very W I D E! My dealer checked and found that Monaco used 3 different systems on our year coach. Finally found a match and bought a couple of sets. I would be interested in a purchase point for replacements that are compatible. PPL does not have mine. They have the length, but not the width of the arm point hook.

Wiper Blades at Napa Auto Parts

Sacs had ordered our wiper blades from Ryder Fleet weeks ago. The blades were originally "a Special Order item" ...but after seven weeks of delays and promises - the company informed Sacs that the part number on their website was not a valid part number...so we went back to Square One...

Camping World kept insisting the blades should be 28" - so they are out...please understand that Sacs is very savvy at ordering stuff from the internet..but these blades were becoming a PITA.

He decided to take the blade to Napa yesterday where he and the counterman looked through a catalog. It looks like they came up with a match and it was in their distribution center less than 10 miles away. They called before 3 PM yesterday to inform us that the blades were in.

What we got was a heavier duty wiper and a much thicker blade... (The top blade is the original blade - look closely at the difference.)


The weight of the blade is also heavier- which may help to keep the wiper on the windshield.

He also decided to replace the wiper fluid hose. What he found for that was actually a piece of vacuum hose. You can see the difference in thickness here. The bottom hose is the original hose.


You can see that the hose just fits in the sleeve that holds it on the wiper arm.(You can also see the blade is a much wider & thicker blade.)


The cost for the hose was 37 cents per foot - the cost of each blade was $35.78 (with NO shipping charges)... which I consider very reasonable when you think of the cost of the rig PLUS I consider it a safety item.

(The Napa part number is 60-3256)

We are happy with what we bought.

napa blades online

MonacoMama that is a great price for the blades, they want 50 bucks plus on their website. I was considering purchasing scrublades but the ones you got look heavy duty. Guess I will have to check price at our local Napa store. You are right about price cheaper doesn't cut it when safety is concerned, here in Nevada lack of use and sunshine is what destroys wiper blades. I will also take the idea of using thicker vacuumn hose for the washers. Thanks for the great post. Hoping my wife and I get to meet many irv2 members in Quartzite in 2010.
