Unhappy Finding 26" WMB blades

I just purchased my first MH a few weeks ago and noticed the wiper blades need replacing. First went to Camping World and they sold me Tricor and the fastening portion was not correct. I have googled WMB Wipers without any luck. Any suggestions before it rains again?
Thanks

When we bought the MH back in 2012 it needed wiper blades. I went to O'Reillys Auto Parts and they were able to cross-reference them and ordered for me. It only took a couple of days. As I remember, the cost was about $39.

Finding the 26" wipers for our '08 Bounder was like an Easter Egg hunt. Even several NAPA shops didn't have or know where to get them. So I called Fleetwood and they actually had refills. Since we were on the road and needed them, I had them shipped. Cost me as much to ship as it did the wipers. Problem is / was most people sell loaded arms these days it seems. Since the arm on the coach mounts with 2 small screws, nobody could say if the blades would actually fit (Rain X etc).

But I now know what I need...

Fleetwood Part Number in Yellow and upsidedown...

Edit... tried several Loves, Travel America, Wallyworld and Camping World. And Zones and O's and a couple independent RV shops.

Fleetwood would only give their part number and it didn't cross reference with NAPA and a few others who tried.

I found complete wiper blades, not refills, at Costco (Michelins), and at Walmart, (Goodyear), for our motor home. Sounds like tire purchases, but they sell wiper blades as well. I did have to do a slight modification to the mounting hole on the blades. I forgot he price, but they were reasonable. I installed one set, and put one set in with the the spare parts I carry onboard.

Rock Auto has 26" Trico blades for your motorhome $1.29 apiece part number 68261 for that price they are packaged under various brands (NAPA Camping World etc) if you want the box to say "Trico" they run around $15 apiece but inside the package the blades are exactly the same.

I should add these are the truck style that mount with small nut and bolt not the clip-on automotive style

Thanks for all the help!

I did not want to go through the expense of purchasing new arms which would stay compatible with what is readily available at most any store.

See you on the road.

Not the WMB's on the Fleetwood. These are held in place by two set screws, which make them more difficult to locate. Learn more about this RV thing everyday.
Thanks,

Another vote for Costco. 26" is the longest they sell. They come with a kit that allows them to be mounted to several types of connectors. The best part, they're about $8.00 a blade, sold individually.

Your post reminded me to buy some blades for my Honda CRV toad. The first blades that came up were these. http://www.amazon.com/Rain-X-Weather...V+wiper+blades

I buy mine at Walmart - they usually stock up to 28". Bosch, Rain-X, Michelin, etc., whatever brand I like. Mine use a small bolt to mount and the standard blades have a hole in the right place but it's a shade too small. I run a drill bit through to ream it out and am good to go. Sometimes I just push the drill bit through by hand - the size difference is so close I can do that.

However, most metal frame automotive style have a hole in the frame that accepts the metric bolt and nut fastener. Found out the hard way, never buy the plastic frame wipers.
I bought my spare set at Menards hardware center.
