Wiper blade covers, need 24 inch for MH.

Hi

I only found one source for windshield blade covers. Their shortest was 28 inches. My Sunova takes a 24 inch blade.

I checked Winnebago and I do have the correct length of wiper blade.

Thank you.

Use a noodle. Inexpensive and choose a color of your choice.

My thought is similar to Doggy Daddy, except I just the buy the foam pipe wrap and cut to length. It's cheap and available at any hardware store. -RT

We also use the foam pipe covers ...less than $2 at Home Depot:

Tubular Foam Pipe Insulation

They are good for protecting the rubber from deteriorating in the summer sun and also good in the winter. We actually use them in the winter on our car on frosty nights so the wipers aren't frozen to the windshield in the morning.

If you absolutely want to full covers, I'm thinking you can still use a 28" cover on a 24" blade. It may be a sloppier fit but will still protect your entire blade and that's what it's all about.

Besides the foam I use a tennis ball under each arm to keep the foam/wipers off the windshield a little.
My wiper blades are almost ten years old and still work fine.

Thanks Guys!

I went down to Lowes and spent $ 1.60 for 5 ft. Works great. It beats 20 bucks or more plus shipping from a vender..

Hello Clay L I have an 04 Sightseer 30B and was wondering if you knew where the OCD connector is to read a fault code? I have my anti lock brake light on and want to see if there is a code on the computer. Thanks in advance, Vern

On mine (W20 Workhorse chassis) the ODB connector is just under the dash on the left side of the steering wheel.
I have had a ScanGauge plugged in for years so I have the trip computer functions available all the time.
I have used the fault code functions twice though. (Both times the fly by wire throttle system was the issue )
