Wiper blades

Well something for everyone driving Class A-B-C. Always carry a spare set of wiper blades. Driving our new 2020 Hurricane during a Heavy rain leaving Florida doing 70 mph. this weekend both blades locked on to each other. Flinging the blades somewhere on 95. Thank God I had my copilot Directing me. Then looking for a 30 blade witch Napa had. Its was scary.

I have a 2018 Windsport which is the same as the Hurricane. Are they 30 inch blades?

I got tired of replacing the 30" blades every year or two at a combined cost of 50+$$$
I went down to a 28" blade and grinded down the arms to fit the standard off the shelf auto size...now I can go to any auto store or Walmart and get a blade at a fraction of the price...
its been over a year ago and have had no issues....

Wiper blades

I dropped down to 28 inch blades also, much easier to replace. I also do a good dressing on the windshield with RainEx water sheds off and only use the wipers in the heaviest rain. It works great especially at night, keeps things really clear.
