Gutter Sealant? What do I need?

Hey guys. So this is happening. Looks like the gutter is separating from the unit possibly due to a poor job on sealant??

Called ORV but the parts folks are not sure about this.

What are your thoughts/ suggestions?

I'm thinking I need to pick up some kind of sealant, remove (pull away) what's there, and give it a fresh start.

20FQ. Next to the ladder corner ... Back left side when you are walking towards the door. Back left when standing outside at the back looking in the back window.

Thanks for your time.

Geocel Pro Flex RV maybe? https://www.geocelusa.com/product/pr...xible-sealant/

It's kind of expensive on Amazon, but a lot of RV parts places seem to have it around half the cost.

Good luck with this...I would epoxy it back on and then seal it.
Who did you talk with at ORV? Todd or Diane should know about this installation.

The gutter extensions are very vulnerable to damage from trees, etc.

Don't ask

For sure ask for Todd. He's in the service department and is very knowledgeable.

Yes it looks broken?
Easily done in wooded campgrounds.

I would try an "adhesive sealant" like 3M's 4200 or 5200 available in marine supply stores. But once the 5200 sets up it's almost impossible to remove.

I agree, that looks like something that's broken as opposed to a bad seal.
5200 would probably work, or even somethink like JB Weld (if that's metal like it looks like).
You might want to consider something that can be sanded and painted so you can pretty up the repair, if you're so inclined.

Thanks guys. It has been like this since we got it, and just figured it was a messy job. The silicon sealing never got done on the outdoor shower... there've been a few 'kinks' in the purchase which we gathered from this forum was the 'norm' with any RV, so we've done our best to just 'float' with it.

Diane was kinda baffled on the phone, and is sending a new gutter part. SO I am guessing I need to silicone the new one in place???

She's also looking at getting a part for us (she seemed mystified by this request too) of the 'thumb latch' on the outdoor shower door.

Again, that shower never got the silicone it should have, and leaked profusely our first couple hours home with it -- rain entering the shower door, going under the tub inside, then down the kitchen hallway area! So now of course that 'thumb latch' is VERY Rusty. Hadn't used it all summer, and while reviewing winterizing we noticed how jammed up it is getting.

If anyone has any idea to that shower door part or what to call it, I'm all ears...

blonde ears, but a sweet heart I promise.

Sam

Cool, thank you. We aren't always so sure who we need to talk to (and which dept) some times. Thanks!!

BTW they 5200 we're referring to is 3M 5200, which a STRONG glue/sealant, often used in marine applications.
It comes in a tube like caulking, you should be able to buy it at your favorite hardware store or home center. Just ask for 3M 5200 (fifty two hundred) and they can take you right to it.

Thanks Podivin, we will add it to the list and throw it in the tool box. Appreciate the help.

Thanks left him a message.

Feel like I am really getting 'broken in' on this 'ownership' thing lately. Whoooo doggy!
