Help us Help you by filing in your Signature with your MH info.
Pictures of the Wiper blade connection would help also, some years are different than others.

Go to "User CP" and then "Edit Signature"


What type are they? Clip on, screw on or what? As I stated Pictures really help.

assuming they are a very common j hook used on 80% of all vehicles look at the middle of the blade, there is a clip inside the J hook at the end of the arm that goes into the middle of the blade you squeeze down on the plastic clip and pull the blade downwards see the video Iink below it shows the j hook deal iam talking about

Looks like a screw type. Just remove the screw and install a new set of RV/Truck type wiper blades. These are wider than passenger car type. Camping World and most Truck stops will carry them, they are expensive so don't be surprised.

If the blade is like our 2008 29R, then you just need to remove the small bolt. I carried the old one into NAPA and they had a direct replacement. Probably cheaper at NAPA than truck stops.

Happy Trails,
Al

These appear to be the same style wiper arms as my 2002 Safari Trek. I recently replaced the wiper blades on mine, they are help on with a small bolt and nut which also holds the end piece for the windshield washer. I used RainX brand wipers as that was what a previous owner had installed, unfortunately RainX has changed the design of their attachment slightly so I had to modify the wiper to get it to fit by trimming 4 small plastic nubs off each wiper to make it fit in the metal U channel of the wiper arm. This took about 5 minutes each using a small angle cutter and then shaving off the remnant with a box cutter.
