The Trico blade is more robust as Mmnsc stated. I haven't put them on yet because the OEM blades are still fine.
We went through some hellacious storms, high cross winds and incredible sustained downpours in Indiana last month and never had a problem with the OEM arm or blades. We had the wipe cycle as high as they will go and the winds were so strong from the street side of the coach we were blown into the left lane by one gust.

Aha! Makes sense. Guess I didn't realize there was any slip in the actual motor, thus me blaming it on the spindle. Mine didn't bend (yet) but it sure makes a loud noise when it starts whipping off the side! Thanks for the info. I'll have to try the replacement blades and see if it helps.

I'm running the Trico Wiper assemblies already. Don't hold your breath. I haven't checked my wiper issue yet…had a propane related problem that took priority. I'll get in there tomorrow and see what I find.

I went from the trico 67-324s to the 67-284s (28" assembly.) Wipers stayed on the glass like they should. No excessive push towards edge of glass. Seems like a better match for the OEM arms. When I get back home I am gonna weigh the oem 32s and both the tricos and see what the scale tells me. At this point I will stick w/ the 28s.

If you had Rain-X applied to your windshield, you probably would have used your wipers. It is somewhat of a pain to put on, but then it lasts a couple months. When you have monsoon type rain sheating the windshield, wipers are almost useless. Rain-X prevents the sheating and the rain rolls off, permitting you to see between the rolls. Hank
