We fulltime and I was seeking a way to keep the water from staying on the slide toppers as well. I bought 1/2 PVC pipe and two elbo's. Measured and cut and installed the elbo's in a [ shape, this hooks under the slideout and tension's the topper and let's the water run off. in each elbo I installed about 5 inches more of the pipe. I did one as a trial and it worked great! Bought enough to do the other front slide. Total cost was less than $8.00 for both of the front slideouts. I chose the tan to match my coach, comes in black and white(cheaper). Be aware my front slides are different heights, don't know about yours. Hope this helps. And I don't have to climb a ladder because I can install these from the ground! My bedroom slides doesn't give a problem.

My topper sags a bit and holds water. Recently I started blowing up several balloons and pushing them between the topper and the top of slide to raise it in the center. I use 30lb test fishing line to pull them out when packing up to move. They worked quite well in 2 rain storms but in a 3rd we had high winds driving against the side of the rig and I doubt anything would have kept the rain off. So far there is no evidence that water has wicked through the fabric because of the balloons.
