Wiper Blades

Anybody replace the wiper blades on their Georgetown 335DS or simular model with something other than the factory type blades
I believe they are 28 inches. Thanks

I'm curious as to what you mean by "other than the factory type blades"?

We just replaced the ones on our 351DS with these 28" ones

So far they have been great, and actually fit better than the old ones actually.

Might have to give those a try. What was fun was driving up into MN with the old blades and coming through that snow storm. Had some serious ice build up on the arms of the wiper.

What makes me nuts is the "herky jerky" of the wiper as it goes across then back. Maybe the new blades will help...but doubt it.

We had a bit of a white knuckle drive in Feb coming back from the Oregon coast - had icy snow falling and it was building up on the wipers as well. Not something I wish to repeat!

Ours aren't herky jerky at all - even with the new wipers so far. We've got a trip planned back to the coast tomorrow and it's supposed to rain, so that will be a good test I'm sure.
