Coach replacement wiper blades

All who are interested.. Anco has a kit part number 48-17 that will convert you wiper arms from ones that use two small screws to hold the blade assy with what is called a J-Hook that will allow you to mount any J-hook blade, and there are many, to the existing wiper arm. Any parts house should be able to order for you. I paid, this is the good part, $6.96 for two J-hook conversions and then went to the wiper area and picked out the baldes I preffered. Parts were at NAPA.
Pull the balde through the opening in the blade and snap the attached cover back in place. No ladder needed.
I hope this helps

As many stated above, I buy decent blades at a reasonable price and modify them with a drill. I too have an older unit (1996 Pace Arrow) I have found the exact and specified blades at a local RV Store but 74.50 per blade, and yeah for sure they are heavy duty and I am sure would work better and last longer, but again 74.50 per blade.....................

Bounderbound

I have an 86 bounder with pantograph wiper arms and the washer fluid tube running alongside the arm. My question is how to install the 48-17 adapters? There seem to be no screw holes there. It would be a great help to see pics of anyone who has done this improvement. I have the parts, just confused... Thanks everyone!

I do the same on my motor home. I took the two screws loose on the bracket that holds the blade. Removed it and drill a 1/4 inch hole in it. Bought a 28 in blade that would work and used a short 1/4 inch bolt put it back together and saved about $75. Now I can get my blades at just about any auto store.
