Windshield wiper squeak

We live in Southern California, so we don't get much rain. This week we're in northern California, and there's this water stuff falling from the sky onto our 2012 Fleetwood Southwind. Unfortunately, the wipers have a very annoying squeak as they traverse the glass.

Anybody have a good solution for squeaky wipers? They're fairly new, so they're not scratching the glass, it's just rubber on glass.

Squeaky wiper blades drive me nuts!

Hi Mike. Try this... Clean the road grime off the rubber wiper blades. Dry the blades WELL with a dry paper towel. Use a spray can of NON-OILY, WILL DRY TO THE TOUCH, SILICONE SPRAY. Wal-Mart sells spray cans of CRC brand dry silicone spray. The spray comes out wet, but when it dries it is clear, dry to the touch, and NOT OILY. To confirm that you get the right can of silicone, spray some on the back of your hand and let dry. It should NOT feel like oil. There are several different silicone sprays blended with OIL. So beware. Don't get something like traditional WD40, because that will leave streaks on the windshield. That is a no-no.

Back to the wiper blades... Spray the silicone on the rubber wiper blades. Use fingers to spread and RUB IT IN- because rubber is porous. Let dry, before using the wipers. Please let us know if this works for you.
