Winnebago Gutters

Recommended Posts

I have searched all over the forums and internet and can’t find where anyone’s posted a solution to this issue. I’ve got gutters that run along the edge of my RV. They don’t quite run all the way to the front, so the water that collects in them dumps out right in the middle of the driver and passenger window. I’ve put gutter extenders on, but that only takes care of the water that comes from the gutter. As you can see in the attached photo, water from the roof runs down in front of the gutters too. So two problems, gutter extenders doesn’t divert all the water from the gutter and gutter doesn’t collect all the water running from the roof. I thought about putting in those air deflector things like I have on my truck. This would at least make the water run around the glass and not run right down it, but I can’t find any to buy. This is a minor thing, but it’s driving me nuts. It also concerns me that the water running off the roof (mostly condensation from the air conditioner) runs off right in front of the front tire, keeping the tire and tire cover wet all the time. Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

When you are sitting still you can make the water from the present extender reach a few inches farther by putting a wooden clothespin on the extender. The water will follow that pin out to the end of it.

Kirk's right, the clothes pins do a good job of redirecting the water away from the side of the RV. After forgetting to remove them a few times and finding them still in place at the next stop, now I just leave them on all the time. In the past 5 years I've only lost two, probably due to passing tree branches.
