That's true about the rain but when it's not raining and you're outside what I noticed right off the bat was the AC water running down into the gutters, then to those cupped gutter spouts and then running down the coach not only leaving streaks but making a muddy wet mess at the base of the MH and splattering on me when I'm getting into the storage bays. I went to Home Depot and bought 14' of clear 1.125" ID hose, pushed it on the ends of the gutter cups, then ran the hose over the front and rear of our trailer and it then channelled the water away. No more muddy mess, no more water dripping on me as I get into storage bays etc. Cheap fix and since it's clear you can hardly see it.

Well, since no one really explained the clothes pin solution, I just had to try it myself. I have no idea if I placed the clothes pin correctly (and it's not really a clothes pin, it's a clothes hanger clip), but it gave me an idea of how this simple solution works. It's raining really hard right now, but at least I can see how it changes the flow of the water. It has potential.

Sorry for the fuzzy pic, but it's raining out there!

You have the right idea. Wood clothespins work better than plastic.

For the Winnebago and Itasca gutters this is the only kind that I think will work, but I don't know where to get them. This is from a 2006 post on this site, and the OP says he got them a LazyDays - I sent them an email last summer and never got any response may have to follow up with a phone call. If any one knows the supplier please let me know, Thanks.
