Right, Oneilkeys, this Forum has a wealth of good information.
Johnny, I installed the TV8-32 and they are a perfect fit. It appears that wiper arms and blades vary for different years of the same model RV.

Had the RV shop replace my blades and now neither arm has the blades making good contact with the windshield. It's like portions aren't being touched at all. Also the washer just dumps water at about 2/3 of the way down the blade. So doesn't wet most of the glass at all. You'd think this would be as simple as it is on auto?
Any ideas on how to correct either would be appreciated.

Another question, does anyone have any modifications how to replace/repair windshield curtains on Thor Vegas 25.3: 2018. The foam backing is peeling and I want to replace the curtains.

Wiper blades

I have a 2019 Axis which is the same as the Vegas and they're both 28". Standard auto type blades too.

These are the large J-Hook connectors, 28”
Unfortunately, the large J-Hook connectors for RV/Bus cost much more than regular auto blades.

Trico 2-pk $57.98

We cut out all the foam backing and only use the curtains when camping. When the Axis is in storage the windows are blocked with foil (and the curtains remain bundled up on the sides).

In addition when camping the outside of the front and side windows are covered with a Sunguard windshield cover (another option for this is a Magneshade).

2019 Vegas/Axis Blades

My 2019 Vegas has 28" wiper blades manufactured by AM Equipment in Oregon.
I ordered two replacements for $42.10-free shipping. They have a website.
Earlier, I tried the TRICO 67-284 blades and had to return them as the J-Hook adapter is both longer and wider than required.
In hindsight, I probably should have checked the local auto parts stores, but none of the reference books seem to list the Vegas.

We discovered our Thor Axis 24.1 wiper blades were falling apart mid trip and had tons of trouble finding replacements. Tried auto part store and even an RV service place. Couldn’t get the blades to fit on the J hook. Finally found some at Gander Outdoor. Trico RV 28”. We had to use a little dish soap on the hook to get them to slide on but they work great.

We had wiper problems on our previous coach and had to drive in some rain without them. I had put on a good coat of RainX on the windshield. Almost didn't need the wipers as the RainX repelled the water.

Would probably be smart to carry a spare set of wipers.

I looked on Amazon and found blades that fit. They are: on Amazon, Trico 67-284 28”, Heavy Duty Wiper Blades, sold by Wipers 123.
They are an inch shorter than the original wipers, but I see no problem so far.
If you decide to go with this, please let me know if you are pleased. Johnny



Want to know if these have working out. I have to buy wiper blades for my Thor Axis 24.1

Tires, batteries, and wipers have been the subject of thousands of threads since the forums came to life.

I use standard 28 inch beam style on the Tuscany

They work well, cheap to replace as needed

I also use rain x type products just in case I have a wiper failure but never have in the past 65 years
