On our 04 Essex with split window shield we are using Costco 28 inch blades which are on sale right now for 4.99 each. Replacement would 32 inch and cost about 30$ a piece. Work great and last over 3 years. Goodyear is the brand.

I picked up a spare set from Newmar the week we picked up the coach. I always carry spare wipers, filters, and belts.

Gentlemen, Several years ago, it was suggested to me that I purchase very inexpensive 1/2" ID split foam pipe insulation, cut it to the length of my wipers and install onto the wipers for sun protection, the real killer of wipers. I now use it on all of my vehicles, simply removing it when rain threatens. It has greatly extended the service life that I receive from the blades. gts1544 = George

George is giving great advice! If I can add, using stand offs will keep the wiper blades from taking a set. Make your own or purchase some.

I've also been using the foam pipe insulation on all my vehicle wipers and my previous coach was 11 years old with the original wipers on it when I traded it off.

X2 on Costco. They go on sale every 4-5 months.
