Where do you guys get you wiper blades from. We have 26" blades, but when we stopped at Auto Zone their 26" blades weren't heavy duty enough. I was able to modify them to keep us going, but there just isn't enough rubber on the blades. I was thinking MCI might be a little expensive, but I don't know.

Any input would be great, I will check back when internet connection is available.

God bless,

John

Check this URL:  http://www.truckpartservice.com/Wipers.htm

Picked this up from a Google search on: "Trico 67 series wiper blades"

I believe any large truck parts place will carry the heavy duty blades and refills.  Also keep an eye on eBay for heavy duty wiper blades and refills.  The Trico 67 blades and Trico 71 series refills come in lengths of 22"-32"

I tried all of the large truck parts places locally and none of them had the long heavy duty wiper blades.  One of them had a display of wiper blades, but they were the lightweight ones like for cars.  I ended up ordering from MCI, but could have picked them up from C &J Bus Repair in a pinch too.

Thanks guys,

Interesting enough our electric wiper conversions were A&M. I bought them through IBP industries. Thanks for the great advice.

God bless,

John
