windshield wiper blades

I am in need of new wiper blades and I am having a hard time locating replacements. I looked in the archieves for info but most was kinda old. I have a 2006 Monaco Monarch 30 PPD on a Ford Chasis. The current wipers are made by Dyna and are 28 inches long with a j-hook. The opening to attach the hook to new blade is wider than ordinary blades. Anyon have any ideas on where to get the replacements? Thanks

I just bought new blades for mine and I went to Fleet Farm (farm and home store) they had a reference book and I noticed all motorhomes were listed in the book. Just infor I guess.

@Ed, I went to their site and could not determine if they were the ones with the wide slot or not. Do you happen to know if it is or not? I am going to go to NAPA in the morning and see what they have or can get. I heard they may be able to help. It was to late today as they were already closed. I will also check Grainger. Thanks to all.

John,
Sorry I do not know. You shouldn't have to much trouble finding replacements.
Good luck

@IIIkrob, I have looked at these on the computor but I am unable to determine if they have the wide slot where the j-hook attaches. Would you happen to know? I am going in to town this morning to try and find blades. This trip will include stops at NAPA, Advance, O'Riely's, CarQuest, Auto Zone and a couple of others.

Well, this morning I went to ALL the local parts places including NAPA heavy duty store and was not able to locate the wiper blades. One guy said he would order them for me but after I left he called and said he could not get them. He said ANCO had them. The TV8-28 mentioned by IIIKRob may work but I cant find out if they have the wide (half inch) slot for the j-hook. Any other ideas or suggestion appreciated.

Yes, they are exactly what you are looking for. I put a set of 32" blades on my 2008 Challenger and they slipped on the arms perfectly.

Thanks, I will contact them Monday and if they fit, they ship. If these dont work Im about ready to replace the arm assembly or take it off, use the redneck method of grinding them down to fit. Trying to find these blades has been a pain in the butt. I had a RV dealer order some an d he got them from Monaco. They were the wrong size when he got them in. Took about 10 days to get them, then they were wrong. Thanks to everyone for replies.

You are running into the same problem I just finished with the J-hook being wider than the slot on the wiper assembly it is supposed to fit in. I ended up ordering from the factory and will NEVER do that again. With shipping I had to pay $175 for two replacements!
Afterward, I had a moment of mental clarity when I realized I could not widen the slot, but could narrow the J-hook. DUH!! I believe I could do a small amount of grinding with my Dremel tool and save well over a hundred dollars and a whole lot of frustration. I have not tried this, but will do it next time. Right now I have purchased a pair of the 'swimmys' (is that a word?) my grandchildren love. They have a hole through their entire length. I simply slit the side of the swimmy and slid it over the wiper body, protecting it from heat, UV light and weather exposure.
