Wiper Arm Covers Class A MH

I was missing these on my coach, I could not believe how hard it was to find them but I found them, so I want to share.

They are a Trico Part, 4 inches long, 1 1/4 wide and snap over the mounting bolt on the wiper arms.

Rome Truck parts
800 284 4345
Talk with Kristen

Part number AW-RPHC

I use a float tube. The kind you see kids playing with in a swimming pool. I cut it in half then split it length wise. It slides right over the wiper arm. Cost $1 season closout, bright PINK. I also put yellow tennis balls under the arms to take the pressure off the blades.

Another way is to buy the split foam tubes that protect pipes from freezing. Never thought of the tennis balls but that is a great way to conserve expensive wiper blades

I use pipe insulation, the foam kind, it is already split. Cut it to length and put it on.

Look close by the drive shaft, some have a cross hole for a pin.

You lift the arm, insert 8 d nail and the blade floats just off the glass, this is to counter the spring so the arm can be removed.

I think you guy missed the point, these are a hard Plastic cosmetic cover to hide the mounting Stud and nut at the bottom of the arm.

1 fell off on my last trip and while I was washing the coach the other crumbled and fell off, very brittle due to sitting in the sun.

I found a few threads about people looking for these, a google search netted Nothing but toyota parts.

But thanks for sharing your cool Ideas about Protecting our wiper blades.

Ted.

Sorry missunderstood. I have never heard of that part failing, will take a look at mine. I was going to use the pipe insulation but didn't have any. I forgot to remove the tennis balls one time and drove 140 miles to Houston. They stayed in place .
