Wiper Problems

My 2008 LaPalma with the single piece windshield is cleared by both wipers until I exceed 25 or 30 MPH then the driver side wiper, while moving from stop to stop, clears only the lower half of the wiper swing. I see that the wiper arms have a spring which I suppose is intended to hold the wiper against the glass and this is possibly my problem. If anyone has a solution to this I would appreciate hearing from you...Jack Wells (new to forum)

I have NOT tried these: NAPA AUTO PARTS

I did see them for sale at a truck service center and wondered if they'd help keep the wipers in contact.

IF you decide to try them, let us know how they work.

Thanks, in advance.

Take care,

Are the blades relatively new? If they are older and stiff that won't help. Also lift the the arms and see if the springs tend to apply some pressure towards the windshield. If not new arms may be in order.

Springs do get weak over time. May need new arms or even the helper springs although you can get too much tension too. Or maybe you're just driving too fast!!

Many years ago when Monaco started using 32" blades many of us had this issue. Since changing to a 28" blade, we have resolved the lifting. Plus the 28" blades are more readily available and less money. And, the 28" wipers will clear the area that you are looking through.

28" Wiper blades

Tried changing from the 32" blades to 28" as suggested. While this did offer some improvement,the problem still exists. Camping world parts tells me that new wiper arms are available only from the chassis manufacturer. Doesn't sound quite right does it? Anyone have a suggestion...Thanks, Jack

The helper springs work well. Arms, blades, and all related parts can be purchased from an supply company called, Mill Supply.
