Stop annoying water stains left and right Ventana

One of the things that has been annoying me since I purchased Vickie is water stains down the drivers side window and body, and down right front dripping on the mirror splashing all over my window, mirror, and entry door and steps.

I needed a way to divert the water to the current gutters.

Not sure why the do not extend to the front of the coach.

I was looking around on the Trim-Lok site and found peel and stick gutter material, located a suppier on Ebay that will sell it by the foot

https://www.ebay.com/itm/J-Rain-Gutt...72.m2749.l2649

My first attempt was a failure, although they somewhat achieved my goal I mounted them too high and it just created a water trough up on the front of the roof. then the water would go over the front seam and down the windshield.

So I pulled them off today and made new ones this is the finished product.

I sealed the front, edge, top edge and rear edge with clear silicone the water is now diverted to the gutter system.

I've installed that on all three of my DP's. On the 2019 DS, I placed it right along the top edge of the windshield. Keeps the roof waterfall off the windshield. It's actually hard to see in the photo.

Ted,

Thanks for sharing that. It drives me crazy. Can’t wait to be done with this problem.

I did this on my coach as well on each side. It works great. Also a couple of coats of CMX ceramic coating works very well at preventing the streaking as well.

That is a good idea. Did you stick it on the glass ? Do you have a Magna Shade? If so does it interfere? Waiting on a new windshield before I install the magnets on the front.

I stuck it right to the edge of the fiberglass. Since the paint is cream, I didn't want to see a stripe between the rubber and the glass. On Ted's, his paint is dark and the molding is nicely disguised. A good fix for his issue, but the DS is different up front and has more problems with water coming down the windshield of that huge nose.

I late ordered a Magna Shade and thought it might be an issue.....it wasn't.

My Pleasure, always willing to share Ideas and solutions.

The rain is not as much of an issue as the condensation from the AC units.

I tried a couple of other options but failed, this solution was too simple and works very well, we got some frost last night so when I went outside this morning I was rewarded with success, all the water only coming out of my spouts.

I don't know why Newmar builds them like this.

Before I bought this one we looked at a used 2016 Ventana 4369 and the guy was complaining about the same thing, the condensation from the AC units dripping on the mirror splashing everywhere is annoying as hell.

Warm it up before applying it makes it a lot easier in the colder climates.

I cut my section then hung it vertical and heated it with a heat gut to take the curl out of it.

Ted.

Ted, Great idea. I have the same issue with my 2015 Ventana 4002. It is currently not available while I am building a new RV Garage. Can you tell me how many feet of material you needed so I can order it and have it on hand for when I get the coach back. Thank!

I think it was 32 inches on one side, and 42 inches on the other.

I assume it will vary based on model and length of coach so 8 ft. should cover just about anything.
