We get just the cut-to-fit blade inserts. Much cheaper than buying the blades with the arm attached since we put new blades on at the start of our RV-ing season.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

They're just the rubber blade part. Pull the old rubber out of the existing wiper arm, cut the new rubber the same length & slip it in the same wiper arm. We get them at Advanced Auto Parts, but I'd think any major auto parts store (Napa, Pep Boys, O'Reilly) would have 'em. I want to say they're Anco brand, but not sure.

We just bought our first Class A and I went to Autozone and bought 24" blades. They wouldn't fit. If I'd wanted to drill out the attachment posts I think they would have worked. The ends of the posts protruding outside the frame made them just too wide. I went to Camping World and paid x2.5 what the Autozone ones cost.
Has anyone else tackled this issue?

Just a heads up- DON"T BUY WIPER BLADES AT CAMPING WORLD!!!
I made the mistake of having them replace mine, while in for another issue. They charged $30 per arm, and $15 to install. Total just for replacing- $90 plus tax. For a grand total of $96.00!!!
This was at the Woodstock, Ga location, in Dec. of last year. It may be more now...

Just before this trip I was checking and found one of my wiper blades slightly torn at the end. These are OEM blades. Mine are 28 inches long. I went to Autozone and purchased the "slip in" replacement blade. My problem was how to get the old blade out. The old blade had the metal insert for reinforcement and looked different than what I purchased. I stopped by my mechanic and he said it was simple. Pull the rubber tip to the side, grab one of the ends of the metal rods with a pair of pliers, and pull. I said, "Show me." He did, and I went home and did the other one. Total price, $14 for the replacements.

Shux! I forgot to go back and buy a spare set. I know that if I have a spare set I will never need them.

I just go to NAPA for our 26" refills with the metal insert in them. They did not stock them, but told me they would have them the next day and they did. NAPA's blades are made by Trico and our last set were put on in Dec '08 and they just started tearing recently.
