Okay, when the time comes, and there is a need to replace wiper arms,
how would one go about finding the right arms to purchase? Especially if
your manufacturer has gone out of business?

Are they sourced from existing manufacturing lines? The coach is built
on a Ford chassis...

No idea on this one. Still searching though.

You will have to see what the wiper blade assembly looks like, and then see if you can find that size and attaching point style in the stores. I do know CW sells a few RV wiper blades. Many RV wipers seem to have a set-up where a pin or small bolt goes through the center of the blade. I have found that you can drill the center pin out of a standard wiper blade assembly and they will go right on. But first see what size and how your original wipers mount to the arm before you go looking to buy new blades.

I could not find the arms and ended up just replacing the blades which I bought from a Fleetwood dealer in Springfield, Missouri.

They work great and ended up saving me money over buying the arms if I could have found them.

Sorry, I had this typed before I saw your last entry.

Actually, I am talking about replacing a broken arm and not just the blades.

Take the arm to a large auto part supply house that also sells heavy truck parts. I helped a guy from Akron with an older Itasca get what he needed that way, just for kicks, we took the old one in and they had the exact replacement.

If your hardware is marked "Made in Brazil", I believe the brand name is Dyco, then contact Cleveland Ignition for parts.

For just about any part on a MH I would reccommend trying NAPA auto parts. Especially stores that are in areas where there is a large truck community. They would very likely have the part or a source for it.
