28" Replacement Wiper Blade part number

I researched this and with trial and error I finally found the correct brand/part number that fits. I have been using these for over a month now, and they work perfectly.

Bosch Microedge 40728 28" wiper blade


Each blade comes with a bracket/clip that will work on our wiper arms or you can remove the bracket/clip from you old wiper arm and use it. The old one will "click out" and then "click in" to the new blade. (The blades are wide enough to fit on our wiper arms)

These blades are $13-$16 and are readily available at Autozone, Walmart, or Amazon.

Also, keep in mind that these blades are 4" shorter, so you will lose 2" on each end. After you put them on, you don't notice the difference in length.

I only use my wipers when it rains so I think 4" missing that's a SAFETY 'I DOM'

I just put 32" blades on mine. They were Tru Vision, identical to the original ones.

Yes. Those are the recommended replacement. However they are expensive and not easy to find if you are in a rural area.

The blades I suggested are inexpensive and can be purchased at Walmart/Autozone if you are on the road.

I drove through rain all last weekend and you can't tell the difference. They work great.

I have not found the WB anywhere else but CW. They are very expensive and not that great of quality. I will switch to badmans find when I need them. If you are staying with the 32" I would suggest buying a spare as you can't find them at a truck stop. I tried last year and had to switch the drivers/passenger to continue our trip. Passenger had no blade on her side.

Is there a particular size/model number that will fit the Berkshire wiper arms?

Look at their Rv in their avatar not a Berkshire so most likely none will fit. I tried the Michelins won't fit just barely too narrow to fit our arms so I'll get the Bosch 40728.
