What is everyone using to cover their windshield wipers

I need to cover my windshield wipers while the RV sits and was wondering what easy ways there is to cover them from the sun and weather. Thanks for all the help.

How old are the blades?
If more than say 6-12 months just leave them on and replace them before your first trip

If you want to cover them use a couple of paper towel tubes covered with aluminum foil.

go buy a noodle and cut it to cover each and slide them on. Or split it would work also.

I use the foam insulation tubing you use to insulate your hot water pipes inside the house. You can purchase them at Home Depot. Cut to size, and the wind won't blow them off.

Search Results forÂ*insulation foamÂ*at The Home Depot

If you have the windshield cover do you still need to do something to the wiper blades? we are new to Class C but had a camper for 15 years
