Gutter extension extensions?? Getting drip on cargo door
 
Despite the gutter extensions on our new TT, I get a steady stream of AC drain water on the cargo door, which, even when left ajar, lets water in the cargo compartment (and is just plan annoying getting wet trying to get something from cargo). This is when the trailer is level too... Any easy fixes here? Longer extension? Open for ideas...

Change level on trailer a little so the roof drains away from it.

We use wood cloths pins.

Same here, and the water lands right on your head when you reach into the compartment to get something! Another indication that those who design don't use........Clothes pin with small poly string attached? Run the string to the ground and you don't get wet........

Ok, time for a dumb question. Use a clothes pin how? I don't understand that one?? Thanks

Exactly! Right on the head. Like someone planned it that way! :)

So Clothes pin attached to the gutter extension, and the water runs down the string...is that the idea?

That's it ......have seen houses with an anchor chain welded into various shapes to do just that

If you want it to fall further from the trailer just use the clothespin, no string necessary.

Just clip the clothespin onto the end of the gutter to extend the surface area. The water will run down the gutter, then run out to the end of the clothespin and drop from there.

Swimming noodles fit right in extensions and direct AC and rain water away from camper. Cheap!

Fantastic. Thanks for the replies all. The clothes pin idea I believe you, and will definitely try it...just doesn't make sense in my head (which is meaningless). Will also try the pool noodle (cut off obviously) - that one seems more logical, assuming the pool noodle hole is small enough to snug over that spout. Thanks again!

They also make plastic extensions for the factory type ones

Continually amazed at the things I learn here. Who woulda thunk?
