Might be a stupid question. If my chassis in my class A is Ford, would my windshield arms be also Ford?

One broke today on my way to Florida, now I’m in a Cracker Barrel for the night.

Thanks

Not necessarily and probably not. They do a lot of mixing and matching when putting things together. Take the broken arm to an auto parts store and see if the have one.

Maybe call Winnebago customer service in Forest City in the morning and ask what they’d suggest. When I had a wiper motor go out on a 2007 Itasca (Ford chassis) I found out it was a Winnie part, not a Ford part. We were on the road and they shipped it to the closest Winnie dealer to where we were. Not that that means it would be the same with wiper arms but they would be able to advise you in best way to replace.

Look on the Trico site for your motorhome.

Ford made the drivetrain, chassis. Your motorhome manufacturer added all that sits on the chassis.

Unlikely. Unless the part was bolted to the frame at the factory, the part is from whatever supplier Winnebago was using when they built the coach. Most auto parts have part numbers and markings on them to identify the maker. If you remove the broken wiper arm and look for markings, Google search against those and you may find what you are looking for. Assuming that the part number or markings are in somebody's database out there, and the database is public to the Internet, you'll get a hit and find out where you can get a replacement.

Most auto supply stores are going to be useless because they will do lookups by VIN and they will either not get any hits on your vehicle, or all the suggested parts will be entirely wrong.

ALL Class A motorhomes The wiper motor and Arms are aftermarket OEM installed. BUT, on Ford Class A chassis they still utilize the Ford Wiper control module. Usually you go back to the RV maker for motor and wiper arm and linkage parts. ROME TRUCK PARTS 1-800-284-4345 They carry almost ALL the various OEM supplier parts. Doug
