Two Questions

Two questions. 1) What is the difference between a Ford Super Duty motorhome chassis & an F53 motorhome chassis? Without writing a 100 page tech manual!!
2) The dual type windshield wiper arms on our Scottsdale are showing rust at the pivot points and I was wondering do you lube them, if so, what is the best way to lube them, and what is the best lubricant to use?
I guess that's 4 questions isn't it?! Ooops, that just made it 5!!
Thanks in advance,
Ron

1. None, they started using that name for the Class "A" Ford chassis as early as 1990 or before.
But there is also a Ford F59 chassis that is used for Motorhomes.

The term Super Duty is also used for the E350 Class "C" Motorhome and pick-up trucks.

2. The windshield wipers are not a Ford item and installed by the Motorhome maker and could be any brand. So can not help you there.

Here is a little background on Ford F-53 and latest info is in sticky above.
As to your wipers use 3 in one, WD-40 but just a drop required.
Come up and join use in Newmar forum.

007; Thanks for the information & the link on the F-53 background.
Thanks also for the invitation to join the Newmar forum. Just sneaking a break while loading up & prepping for a short trip this coming week, but I will make a point of joining the forum later today & going to the link you sent along to check it out.
Thanks again,
Ron
