Gutter spouts

Is it just me or does anyone else have trouble keeping these stupid things attached to the gutters? I'm talking about the little spouts that slide into the gutters to keep the water runoff from running down the side of the coach.

It seems no matter how well I've got 'em pounded into the gutter, & no matter how careful we are about making sure they don't get scraped by tree branches at campgrounds, at the end of each season, I'm missing at least 1 of those suckers. One minute it's there, the next time I look, it's gone & I don't know when/where it came off.

I think they should sell them in bulk at the parts counter!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I gave up on any that fit right and now use the wooden clothespins that spring together...I have a set of 4 that have been on for about 2 yrs...

I got some #6 X 1/4" stainless steel sheet metal screws and drilled a small pilot hole through the side of the new gutter spout into the side of the existing gutter spout. One screw in each spout is enough to keep them in place.

Footdoc, Have any pictures of how you use the clothespins? That's my type of solution! Do you just clip them onto the gutter?

Yep.

Just clip them onto the bottom of the gutter outlet.

I gave up on the gutter extensions long ago. They get ripped off no matter how you install them. I have some self-stick gutter material that I am going to try. I will let you know how this works.

I bought some aftermarket gutter spouts(Camco) that are about 3X as long as the originals. They replace the originals instead of clipping on/into something.

Lori,
When we had our Journey, Mike picked up a couple sets of the gutter spouts for me. I had him buy a spare set as well thinking I might loose some, but the ones I put in never fell out. I'm not sure of the manufacturer or where he purchased them, but they were very secure. I'll give you the spare set in the Spring if you want to try a different type.

Thanks, Joe. I'll take you up on your offer.

In the past, I've always had our dealer paint the replacements to match the top of our coach (like the original spouts)...at a price. But, at the rate we lose them, I'm not gonna bother anymore. Might take a can of spray paint to them to get them close, but no more custom paint colors - not worth it.

Guess I'm the last of the big spenders! Still use the wooden clothes pin and don't mind if one gets lost.

I used a very small amount of Dicor as an adhesive to keep them in place. Did the same thing on the weep hole covers for the windows. Got tired of having to buy more. Still holding after a year, Time will tell.

I have been using wooden clothespins for 5-1/2 years. I leave one on at each corner, full time and add clothespins, to lengthen, as required.

I had read your earlier post and will keep it in mind if my fix falls apart. So far so good.

Hi All,

I just bought these for my vintage TT. Would someone, with the clothespins, mind posting a photo?? I can't figure out what you mean about placement.

Keep in mind; I'm a blonde so use lots of bright red arrows and small words for description............ LOL!!

Sheila
