Windshield Gutter/Sunscreen Compatibility

I dislike the streaks that run down the windshield of the coach and was going to install this....

EZE RV Gutter System, 10' - Product - Camping World

Now that I have the exterior Sunscreens (see below) ordered for the windshield, anybody had any issues with the sunscreens on/near the gutter?

RV Sunscreen | No More Snaps, Drilling or Climbing
Anybody had any experience with this?

I have the RV gutter down both sides of our coach and really like it. Be sure to clean the surface and when it sticks, it sticks!

Glad to hear that...do you have outside sunscreens? Any issues with it and the gutter?

I have both on my coach and the only problem is quite a wrinkle across the top third of the sunscreen. I don't know if it's the gutter or just the cut of the Prompt sunscreen. They took it back and said they redid it for me but it's still exactly the same. It may be just my coach as it has the top mounted mirrors that the sunscreen has to fit between.

Very well, I'm looking forward to getting it installed this weekend (the windshield gutter) did either of you install it yourself?

Appreciate any tips/pointers if you did. If you didn't, no worries, thanks for the response!!

So you put it over all your windows too then? I think it should go above my windshield rubber top and planning to mount it to the coach, not the glass....right above the rubber on the gray color.....?

I ran mine from the top of the windshield down the side of the body to the rear end. Where the factory attached the roof to the sides, 1/8 above this seam. This keeps the streaks off the sides of the body. Can't hardly tell it is there. Had a friend with similar coach and he wanted to know why the dew ran down the side of his and made streaks and I had to point it out that it was there. Also on the roof at the rear in front of the clearance lights, I ran another piece side to side to keep the dew from running down the rear. This helped a lot with clean up and looks. I have two places on each side of the MH and I can wipe them off with 1 small rag.

Good idea! My coach has gutter rails down the side, but one place where the joint is leaks down the side. I like that idea on the rear too!

Can't get a pic, it is in the shed and I'm recooping from Hernia surgery and on some pretty good pain pills(thank goodness for spellchecker). Ok let me try this again, where the fiberglass roof cap is attached to the sidewalls there is a seam. Awning, sidewalls, slideouts, and slideout toppers are all under this seam. I ran a continuous RV Gutter 1/8 of a inch above this seam. On a American Coach, the fiberglass roof is one piece from the top of the windshield all the way back and down to the tail lights. The reason I did this above the seam,it keeps the seam dry and there are no cuts in the gutter for streaks, I have a streak at the front at the corner of the windshield down to the front bumper and another at the rear of the coach. These can be adressed from the ground after a rain or a morning dew. I chose the off white(cream) and it matches my colors very well. Look at the sideview of a AC on a dealers website and maybe this will help.

No, it is one piece on each side, Can't get a pic now. Coach is in shed and I am recouping from Hernia surgery,sorry. The RV Gutter is above the fiberglass roof seam, this is above the awnings, slide toppers and slideouts. American Coach uses a one peice fiberglass roof cap that runs from the top of the windshield and all the way back and down the rear to the tail lights. I followed this seam 1/8 inch ABOVE this seam. This protects the seam and gives me a 42ft gutter. I ordered the cream colored gutter and got lucky, looks like it was made for the colors I have. I hope this helps. On my profile page I have a pic but I doubt it will show up very well.
