Wiper blades/motor

Have a 1975 Argosy motor home. Passenger side wiper doesn't work. Also need two new wiper blades (20"). Thanks

Wiper blades

Thank you for the referral on the windshield wiper equipment. I like the photo of your Argosy. I tried to get a 20' but ended up with a 26'. Going on our first journey tomorrow. thank you again.

Hope you have changed the fuel lines (modern fuel eats old rubber), your coolant system is working (45 year old radiators needed re-coring) and you have made sure the brakes are in good working order (Argosy brakes are never great what go from poor to non-existent in a heartbeat). All 3 have the capability to ruin a first journey very quickly.

You may or may not be aware... there is a switch for each side. I didn't think my passenger wiper worked either until I pulled a "What's this knob do?" and realized each side has an independent control.

Getting ready to do our first outing in the Argosy 24. I've been getting everything taken care of over the past year or so. Finally got new tires last week, and next week will be the first real drive.

I did around the block a couple of times before it felt like it was really "ok." Then did a "trip" to the propane fill up. Plan on doing a trip to pick up the kiddo from school this week, and then I will feel confident enough to do a <100 mile trip for the weekend.

Baby steps!
