Roof Drainage Rail Gutter Leaks

All new rubber roof last June. Same side gutter channels, it appears, same leaks, it has to be overflowing the channel, or the channel has a leak in it??


Why is the rail leaking out over the top of the (and almost middle of the 12' galley) slide and down the side. ??

Also I see a joint that causes a leak, but why the other one to the left of the little bedroom window leaking too.....?

I had to upload this to You Tube to share it...


I don't see that much dripping from the end gutter spouts, either, so the channel can't be full. Puzzling....and aggrevating!

Your videos are almost useless when they are displayed sideways.
Your description sounds like your gutter is high on each end, should be a bit higher in the middle.
That is easy to check with a laser level. First make sure your RV is level, then hold the laser level on the gutter, turn on the laser and measure distance from beam to gutter in about 4 places.
For an immediate solution, just raise the front about 2" and make water run to the rear instead of overflow the gutter in the middle.
