Thumbs down wiper blade replacement 373 ds

Having great difficulty finding replacement wiper blades for 2012 373DS. The "J" hook that holds the blade on is wider than anything that I can find at retailers. Forest River Georgetown is of no HELP AT ALL terrible customer service.

Have you tried any Ford Truck Centers? Take the old one with you so they can match it up.

Was wondering the other day where I was going to find wipers when the time comes. Hopefully someone else on here with a Georgetown has had to replace them and can give us a supplier.

If you find them, please update the thread as to where you found them. I keep a spreadsheet on where to find replacement parts.

When ours wear out again.

I'll be getting a set of 28" from the closest truck stop.

I think there is some confusion as to my what the problem is w/wiper blade. It is not the 28 inch length but is at the little "J" shaped bend where you hook the blade on that is the problem. It is wider than most standard replacements available at retail suppliers.
Thanks for all the replies will keep all posted.

Had the same issue and the dealer I use for service found 28 inch blades for me. I will save your link for the next time I need to replace. Thanks!
