My previous Class A motorhome had a factory-installed window washing squeegee held in place with spring clips under the hood. My latest unit had no such extra, so I decided to make my own. I bought a telescoping squeegee and a package of two spring clips — the kind used for hanging brooms and such — at Walmart. I mounted the two clips on the Ford F53 chassis by drilling two holes for each clip into the engine air filter box mounting frame and using four sheet metal screws. Just be sure to not drill into the plastic air filter box. Now I can just open the hood and grab the squeegee to clean the windshield while getting fuel.
