Gutter extensions

Has anyone installed the gutter extensions to direct the water away from the side of the motorhome? I purchased a set and they won't fit. It looks like another piece is necessary. Is this the case and if so where do you get the other piece?

Hi J. Ingram,
I have them (purchased at CW). They were not easy to install, but they do install and work as advertised. They have been on the coach for 4 years.

You don't say what make/model motorhome you have, but it looks like it may be a Winnebago in your avatar. There is a difference from one brand to the next in how the gutters are shaped, etc.

I've pretty much given up finding any extensions what will work on my Winnebago. The standard things from Camping World/RV dealers (Camco brand??) kind of work but not quite. I did get one to work above my driver side window for awhile with the help of some caulk to fill the gaps. Some have reported using some from Fleetwood that have a little post that fits into the slot under the gutter, but even after some carving with a knife there was no way they would work for me.

You have to buy the regular gutter extensions first and attach them first before you put on the extenders. I have them on my rig and they work very well.

One thing I did though on the back side of the extension I put some putty so that the water would not run out the back. I also had to make the gutter opening a little bigger. They do the job nicely though. Good Luck!

Is there any screwing on or alteration necessary. I wouldn't like to make holes, etc. Joe

There are 2 types of extensions. One is to be used if you have the factory short extensions. They simply clip over the factory piece and extend further out. The other type (made by the same company and looks just about the same) is to replace the factory extension or, if you do not have a gutter end spout, to provide your coach with an extended spout. These are installed by pulling back the vinyl moulding that covers the the screwed on gutter rail along the top side of the coach. If you have a broken factory end spout there is a screw that secures it behind that vinyl moulding and it screws through the gutter rail and is sealed with silicone sealant so just unsrew it. If you have no factory ends to replace, you will have to drill one hole, mount the new extension and seal it with silicone.

May work for most brands, but this is exactly why adding gutter extensions is not that simple on a later model Winnebago ...there IS NO VINYL MOUNDING that covers the "screwed on gutter rail" or anything else because the Winnebago gutter is not attached anything like that.

On many Winnebagos you may be able to make some brands work with the help of caulking, and in some cases doing some carving on the extensions. Its a matter of improvising. I too will not put extensions on my Winnebago if it requires drilling ...they just don't do that much for me.

I suppose I could get a good fit if I found a set of gutter extensions I really like, then take them to a large RV dealership and tell them "I want a motorhome to fit these." That's how I bought my current toad ...got one that would fit around my recumbent bicycle and still have rear seating!!

If you have a rubber (type) roof don't use silicon.

Silicone can be used as long as you are not applying it to the rubber roof. For sealing in the spout extensions and on the metal rain gutter it's what will work.

I took the other approach. Liquid roof on the edpm, and a new coat of clearcoat (spray cans, after wiping the fiberglass with deglosser) on the top of the front cap.

I don't get any more streaks of anything down the sides of the coach anymore, ever.
