Rain gutter spouts?

Hi gang,
I had to replace the rear a/c on our American eagle. The old a/c had a condensation drain that connected to a hose inside the coach and out the bottom.

The new a/c drains onto the roof and of course down the sides.

I have googled and found no spout that just clips onto the gutter rail. Does anyone know of a gutter spout that just clips onto the gutter?

Or, have you made something that worked on a permanent bases. I am not going to use clothes pins.

Thanks,
Jake

Nope. Those are extensions if you already have spouts.

Jake21, I think you may want to look at the first group on the list from the link above. Those ARE spouts WITH extensions.

Just curious, is there a reason that you didn't hook the drain to the new A/C ? Aside from that, CW sells them.. I put them on my coach...

I must have a different rail than most. I looked at the ones at camping world and they do not look like they come even close to fitting. Also, they require a small hole, and I am not going to put a screw into the side of the coach. I guess I could ice a rivet, but would rather not.

As to the new a/c, it is not set up to use a drain hose to the inside of the a/c unit. It only has holes on the outside. I may try some modification to get it to drain into the existing hose.

Thanks,
J

I don't know if they are still available, but it seems to me that there was once a "drip pan" available to be mounted under roof ac units. They were designed to route the water to one corner of the pan where a hose of some sort could be attached to further direct the water to any drain location desired by the owner. I have no idea of the manufacturer or where they can be obtained, so I'm not much help here.

Our last coach had two roof ac units. We had the same problem with water draining from the roof that everyone else had. In our case I simply didn't worry about it. Kept the roof clean and did not have a problem with black streaks. Our current coach has basement air and the drainage is no longer a problem.

While I have seen the spouts mentioned above, I don't believe I have ever seen "clip on" spouts. It would be a problem keeping "clip on" spouts attached while traveling our highways.
