Wouldn't a tennis ball hold arm out too far?

Anne, I agree. Busy area at Lazy Days.

I think you want something that blocks the UV rays, a tennis ball won't do that. They have the covers ready made.

We also had them make us a rug, for the entry steps and the cockpit area. Came out very nice. They custom make them, took them about 10 mins to make a template for our coach, we paid, and got the carpet delivered by UPS 5-6 days later.

They have a special going on right now,,,, like $29 a night or something like that (I deleted the email) to stay in the campground. Wades will come to your site for the measuring.

XX on the Lowes pipe insulators for the wipers. I use the brightly colored pool noodles as corner protectors on the slideouts. My head/shoulders much prefer running in to them.

Will last five years?!? That's funny Don. In my driveway in central AZ they last about 3 months!


And I think most people use the tennis ball in winter to prevent the blade from getting frozen and immoveable against the glass. Fortunately I don't have that dilemma.

The tennis balls lift the blades off the glass so they keep their shape longer. They are just another means of prolonging the life of the wiper blades. I use covers and tennis balls.

If you're not using the rig, take the blades off and store them underneath or inside.

I use the pipe insulation and leave it on the wipers until it rains. Works great and is very cheap.
