There was a thread that ran about a month ago on Newmar wiper blades and one of our members - Mahlon - that also has a Scottsdale posted the last item in the thread and said that they did not fit the wiper arm back on page 3 or 4.. That's one of the reasons I am confused (easy to do). <snip> </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Yep, that was me. I've been so swamped with honey-do's around the (real) house that I haven't had the time to re-visit this. I do have the replacement Trico blades, but I already know that I'll have to do some fab work involving some 1/4" aluminum spacers (the stock ones on the blade screws are too short, so need to make new ones), ream out the holes in the blades to .255" to clear the spacers, plus cut/fit some Teflon tape to take the place of the Trico plastic bearing that's supposed to go between the blade and the arm channel (which is too wide to fit the Dyna arm channel).
Funny thing... seems like ALL of the RV manufacturers use/used those furshlugginer "Dyna" wipers and paralleogram arms, for which there aren't any spare parts available. I don't get it.
OBTW, Trico doesn't sell refills for these blades!
Before I cut anything I plan on calling Trico to find out if there's a Trico parallelogram arm that can replace the Dyna arm so that the (available) Trico blades can fit without modification.
I changed my avatar as a result of this experience. I hope that it's temporary...
