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.

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

Yes you should being they are rubber and will be subject to ULV'S. IMO more important then the windshield....

wiper covers

They are Adco, and you should cover your tires

I go with *KenandTerry*;
foam insulation tubing--already has slit in side, lightweight, cheap, and replaceable. Cut to size they will protect the rubber.
Save that bit of extra cash for the important things,
if you will...

I used a tennis ball under each wiper arm just to keep the blade off the glass for years. Now I use a piece of a noodle split and cut to length. Plus with the bright color you won't pull out with them still in place!

Noodles also work well on the edge of your slides.

I have used the foam pipe insulation for years.
My Mom was a full timer with my Dad until he passed away and she passed the trick along to me.
I buy the full length un-split section from Home Depot and cut to length then slit to slide over the wiper. Never lost one. And they last a couple of years, even with the front of my rig facing West and catching the afternoon sun year round.
Hope this helps some.

I replace wiper blades every spring and don't worry about covering them. Cost of replacing them (which they need periodically anyway) is not much, compared to having a clear view in the rain.
