I have read on this forum that the gutter extensions at Camping World do a good job.

However, do you remove them during travel? They seem to stick out quite a ways.

Scott, I bought a set, but haven't installed them because they're white. I'd have to paint them first.

They are screwed on, and semi permanent from what I can see.

I saw a set on a 2000 DSDP and they were painted to match the rig, and they were not very noticeable all. The whole rig had been repainted by Precision and looked like a million bucks. A much better paint job than Newmar does.

The CW description in the catalog makes it sound like you would slide the actual extensions onto a bracket that is mounted via screws.

If they are permanent, does that mean they are like curb feelers for toll booths?

Nah, that's what your mirrors are for.

The instructions state to remove the trim screw and place the gutter extension behind the trim, reuse the screw and recaulk.

I'm not going to do all that, as I don't like the looks of that mounting system.

I'm going to see if I can cut the extension and attach it to my existing spout.

The set of 4 that I bought from CW just snap on to the stock MH spout and I leave them on all the time. They have never been blown or knocked off yet, except when I whacked one while washing the MH even then I just snapped it back on. PAZ is right, the mirrors do scrape the toll booths before the gutter extensions, just ask my terrified wife!

Toll booths at Sarnia Canada across from Port Huron are the narrowest I've ever seen. I had 1.5" on either side. Slightly scraped the passenger mirror and was proud of myself for just doing that.

There were no wide lanes either.

OK, I officially hijacked my own post.

We have yet to go through a toll booth. I hadn't thought about narrow booths before, are the truck lanes wider and can RVs use the truck lane? I'd like to know this before I have to go through one. Thanks for the info and sorry for being off topic but this is where the subject came up!

Yes, virutally every toll booth center I have seen either have all lanes wide or designate a wide lane. Not usually desginated for trucks so anyone can use.

I believe they are generally between 11' 6" and 12' 6"

Also, usually the wide lanes are on the far right. So if no designation then stay to the far right lane.

Purchased a set of gutter extensions at CW.

Not wanting to remove any screws from existing gutter. I used silicone caulking and a pop rivet to attach each extension. I did modify the rear extensions by trimming them down prior to mounting.

They do help to reduce the run off streaks but, they don't eliminate the steaks.

In retrospect I wouldn't purchase in the future.

I tried the CW extensions on both my old Fleetwood and my new Newmar....no fit on either...I would have to completely detatch the original drip spout and mess up the factory paint and sealing to add this extension...will go with black painted treated wood riveted to the factory spout so it will swivel when necessary...I gave up on the CW extensions!

The first set I bought were spouts AND extensions.

Today I found snap on extensions.

This is what we want.

Like Footdoc says, on my coach there is no screw at the end to remove. I'd have to do some major prying of the gutter where it's attached to the gelcoat fiberglas. I spent some time monkeying with the plastic product, but got frustrated. I may, eventually, be able to cut them to fit, followed by a dollop of silicone. I'm not going to screw anything into the gelcoat on my baby.
