Wiper Blade Covers

Looking for wiper blade covers for 36 inch blades. Can't seem to find anything over 31-32 inches. Any suggestions? This Florida sun will ruin the blades in a heartbeat unless shielded. Have 2015 Newmar Ventana but I am sure other Class A's use.

I had mine done in Texas by a couple that made my RV Sunscreen windshield covers, side window covers and wheel well covers. Money well spent.

For storage use, or while parked at home, just go to Home Depot or Lowes, in the plumbing department, and buy a length of foam pipe insulation. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...on&FORM=RRIMGI It's about $2.00 for 6'. Cut it to length and slide it over your wiper blades. It will last about five years or more.

You could also get a hollow pool noodle, split it and cut to the correct length.

I had mine done in Texas by a couple that made my RV Sunscreen windshield covers, side window covers and wheel well covers. The wiper covers slip on half of the length and then close with a Velcro strip. Money well spent.

Exactly what I did with mine. Works great. I can even drive down the highway with them on.

I bought wire loom cover like you see around all the wire bundles under your hood. I took a pair of sizzlers and cut the split in the loom about 1/4" all the way down it makes it easier to put them on. it covers the wiper blade and is not that bulky.

Yup, been doing that for years. It's cheap and very effective. I put a little 303 on the wiper arms ...I actually put 303 on just about everything but cloth and glass and I've never seen any fading or deterioration when leaving the motorhome or other things in the desert southwest.

I think, its called Wades RV?

They offer them. They are based at Lazy Days near Tampa. Buy a Motorhome from Lazy Days and they give you a set!!

Xx pipe insulation. Easy to put on and take off. Also put tennis balls under wiper arms to raise blades off window.

I heard about Wades but area is so congested, wanted to avoid. However need something over windshield anyway to keep out this sunlight and heat. Thanks.
