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.

I put rain-x washer fluid in mine as well as all my vehicles. Drove 100 miles in the berk today and it was pooring the whole time. Never really had to turn wipers on. Every now and then I spray the windshield to add more rain-x. I swear by this stuff. 👍👍👍👍

I had a malfunction on my passenger side blade. It was a Truvision Tv832 that I bought from a local vendor about a year ago. The blade it self was fine having been covered when parked. The problem was the adapter they used warped and the part that clips into the arm wouldn't hold. So the adapter that the Bosch includes doesn't even clip into the arm, it just kind of slides over it. So you can probably rig something to make it stay like I did. Or you can use the existing clips if yours are still are still usable. The visibility reduction isn't any major problem for the driver but it is noticeable on the passenger side.
I also use the Rain X wiper fluid. It is good stuff.

I just got back from a long journey with lots of rain. No issues at all with these blades.

Thanks for the tip on these Brian. I just ordered some for my '13 Berk. The ones that are on my rig now are making that real annoying noise and not wiping very well. -Glenn

X4. We used Rain-X in Germany and it ~literally~ was a life saver!

I just saw where Rain-X is making Wiper Blades with rain-x embedded - sure wish they made them in MoHo sizes!
