I bought my wipe blade refills at my local auto parts store. No way do you need to purchase a whole arm assembly. Just measure the length you need and your in business.

Any good RV dealer should have just the blade for replacement, you don't need the whole set up asTom has said. You can also try a truck stop with scales they have supplies also. "007"

RV Wiper Blades

Here is a web site where you can enter your coach model and it will tell you where to get the blade. I got the blade part number off the web site and ordered it from O'Reilly's. It was in within 2 days. Good Luck.

A 28" should be easy to find, the 40" are a pain.

On our 04 Essex with split windshield we put Costco 28 inch wiper blades in and they work great and are around 8$ each and when on sale 5$ each.

Did you guys use standard 28" blade assemblies made for cars/trucks with J-hooks?

I planned to replace my stock 32" blades with these but was told RV's use "thicker" j-hooks that don't fit normal car/truck blade assemblies.

Our coach uses 32 inch blades that are actually 31.5 inches. Got replacement wiper blades at NAPA for approximately $29 each. No refill blades were available.

Newmar has at least two different wipers with different size j hooks.the original one that came on my KSDP had wider and thicker j hooks and I could only find blades at some dealers and ,maybe camping word. The 3rd wiper system Newmar installed on my coach will take the standard size blade available everywhere. wI per blades are sold. Also only cost a fraction of what the original large and heavy blades.

I replaced my 32" OEM j-hook arms with 28" j-hook arms, based on posts on these forums. As others have written, it is very easy and inexpensive to by 28" replacement blades.
