Cleaning Gutters from the ground w/compressed air.

I need to blow out the gutters on my fifth-wheel often as Iím usually parked under trees.
My RV height is approximately 13í 4Ē and although it has a built-in ladder Iím scared of heights...so is my wife. I can pay someone to do it on occasion but if I could do it myself it would get done a lot more often.
I have a decent air compressor to run air-tools and had the idea that I could use a blow-nozzle with a long neck and a 180 degree bend(more or less) at the end to walk around my RV and blow out the RV-sized narrow gutters.
Iíve been digging around online and found lots of products intended to clean out gutters using a blower or pressure washer but so far Iíve found nothing viable that uses an air compressor.
The closest thing I found was this:


It is actually pretty close but the bend at the end isnít enough. I donít think i could bend the end successfully but may end up trying. Iíve got some tubing benders around here somewhere.
Does anyone know where I can find something like this but with more bend at the end?

If you can find a wand like the one in your picture that has a threaded tip you might be able to fashion a ďUĒ shaped tip using copper tubing. Copper tubing is very easy to bend without kinking.

Without a very large compressor and the type of tip that increases air volume of like 5 to 1 , I don't think you will get much done before no air. Better off with a leaf blower and gutter cleaning kits readily available. Seen some telescoping gutter wands for garden hose may help wash off roof a bit also.
Looked like same gutter kit was way cheaper on Ebay vs a quick look on Amazon.

Most of the air nozzles like you have posted have threaded ends, Just remove that tip, add a threaded 90 and reinstall the tip. That should give you the perfect angle.

I made one using brake line, bends very easy, comes in two sizes and different lengths. The tip will unscrew and brake line comes with fittings. It works great
do not let the haters tell you other wise.

Have the same issue with our house. I use an old sailboat mast, round about 3" diameter and a 180 mandrel bent exhaust pipe. Hook up a cordless leaf blower to one end and it works quite well. It is about volume of air not pressure so depending on the compressor size it could work. On the other hand a cordless blower has multiple uses around a camper.
