2015 Windsport Wiper Blades

I need to replace the wiper blades on the RV. Even though they have been covered whenever it has been stored, the rubber has deteriorated. Can new wiper blades be purchased at auto parts stores?

Also, what's the trick for removing them from the arms. I tried prying the little tab down while attempting to pull the blade from the arm. Neither blade will move even a fraction of an inch.

The wiper blades can be purchased at auto parts stores if they carry the length you need. For our Challenger I found them at our local O'Reillys.

If those are the original blades they are probably jammed on or stuck to the arms and some close to excessive force may be required.

Trico 67-324 wipers

$61.50 for two wipers! Dam!

Think I will start taking them off when parked in the driveway as they never get used but the sun destroys them.

I knew they'd be expensive. I went to O'Reillys this afternoon and they didn't have any long enough. I will check with NAPA tomorrow.

We keep the wipers covered with homemade marine type cloth bags, yet they still deteriorated. Must be the heat not the UVs.

"Currently Unavailable" on Amazon, but refitted our 2015 Windsport with these last year. Changing out was simple and easy. $70 for the pair last August.

I just ordered two of these (Trico 67-324 32" Heavy Duty Wiper Blades) on eBay for about $70 including tax. I would have bought them today at NAPA if they had them, but they were closed.

eBay is where I purchased mine this afternoon.
