Good idea!! After reading this thread I went to a local auto parts dealer and paid $95 for 2-32" RV wiper blade replacements!
Didn't even get a senior citizens discount! (LOL!!)

Hi Tom
You got ripped off. I paid $33 each for them at O'Reilly's. And they were Tricos. Enjoy Watkins Glen Say hello for us to all our friends.

Marty I'll ask him a couple of times what he paid. LOL. Wish you and Donna had made the rally but we will look forward to Goshen. Margaret says you are going to Cypress Trail after the Tampa show. She couldn't remember exactly but that's what she thought. Hope so. That's out winter park.

Up here in Acadiia Maine. We had promised the girls for the trip north otherwise we would have been to Watkins Glen.
Margaret is right, we will be staying at your winter park i believe is for 1 week. Don't rub it into Tom too much that he over paid for his wiper blades You know how sensitive he his.
Got my leveling system fixed today. We were fortunate to get a great mobile RV service. They were Ellsworth RV and i would highly recommend them for anyone in the area that might have a problem with their RV. In addition they work out of Orlando for the winter.
See you in a couple of weeks in Goshen.

The controller that is mounted on the ceiling of the bay mid ship went bad the whole thing had to be replaced. The part alone was $510 + $124 shipping and handling (ouch) and of course to cist for the service call.

When are you leaving for mouseland?

I just bought a pair of wiper blades at camping world, Trico 67-324 and paid $29.99 each. They are in the catalog for the same price. Amazon has them for $39.99 each.

Paulie Boy: I saw the same thing on CW's website and was considering them. Have you had a chance to install them yet? I'm wondering how they are weight wise when compared to the OEM wipers. I think a great deal of the problem I'm seeing is the OEM wipers are so small and light they are actually being blown off the windshield at highway speeds, twisting them on the spindles until they are in the wrong position. It only seems to be the driver side that is affected.

The Trico 32 inch blade at Camping World and other auto suppliers are far more robust than the OEM that came on the coach. I had to buy the replacement Trico's brcause the OEM was flying off the windshiekd on the drivers side and bent the original wiper blade. The real problem is there is too much play in the wiper motor mechanism and the movement of the long arm at highway speeds (wind force) on a wet windshield allows the blade to fly to far left. The spindle is NOT slipping.
