Gutter spout extensions

The condensate from the ac's trails under the gutter and down the side of my coach making a mess of the windows.
Has anyone tried gutter extensions and how did the work ?

Yep, put them on the Dutch Star, they worked pretty well IMHO. And they even stayed on. I'd do it again if I needed to. In fact I found them on a closeout and bought several sets. Now the Magna has roof drains so don't need them. Guess they'll go in a box for a garage sale later this year.

They are on our rig and work well, but get sun dried and fall apart. I just bought a set in black to help with the sun. Yes, experience has taught me that black plastic fares much better in the sun than white!

Is there a trick to install them? I bought a set from Camping World about 7 years ago and cannot get them to fit at all - they're sitting in my toolbox taking up room...

If you need to flex them when installing, soak them in a bowl of hot water.

They flex very easily when hot.

We had the 'standard' length spouts on our 5er so I ordered the longer version - which turn out to be not much longer, i.e.1/2" - for the a/c drainage off the roof. I added some more to that length by taking a plastic gallon milk container, cutting pieces from the corners of that jug and pop riveting an approximate 2" extension. I had done the same on the last 5er and they worked just fine and were really unobtrusive if done neatly. We no longer have those dirty streaks, the cost was for two pop rivets/spout or maybe a dime's worth of supplies for each spout.

I saw a guy in FL. who had the gutter spout extensions, but he added a piece of PVC pipe to them to put the water out further. I took one of my spouts to Home Depot and found a small PVC pipe that fits snugly over the spout. Cut it into 3" pieces, slid over the spouts, no more water running down the sides.

My personal solution is to clip a spring wooden clothes pin on the end of the spout. Water will travel down the clothes pin and extend the drip line about 2 farther from the RV side. Also that way if you clip a tree branch with your rig it will just snap off the spout instead of breaking it, and can be replaced for pennies.

I bought the Camco gutter spouts for our MH. I installed them last week. I had to remove some silicone, take out 1 screw right there at the edge of the gutter, trim the spout a bit, and slide it up under the gutter. Then put the screw back in and reseal everything. It works great, no more constant water stains coming down the window.

Yep, most need some re tooling to work correctly. I've cut and mounted using black RTV sealant adhesive and Silka Flex with success.

I used them and they worked well. My newer one came with them on. Although I have ac drains I don't have heat pump drain lines. I am glad to have them for that reason and for rain.

I bought a few different versions of these clips to try and the clothes pin system works the best so far. Got a pack of 36 from a dollar store and only used 2 so far, been on 5 outings (short ones) but they are still on. Thinking about spray painting the others so they will not ever be noticed if and when the first ones fall off.
