Water Leaking Under Rain Gutter

Hi all, complete noob here. Just bought our brand new 2504S trailer. Always been tent camping. Been out twice already and everything seems ok. My issue is water streaking down one side(so far) about 2 feet before it hits the rain gutter spout at the end of the trailer. It does this in three particular spots. So to investigate I went on the roof and watched the water condensation from A/C flow down roof and into gutter. Everything is fine. But once that water hits those three particular spots it comes out from under the gutter. The gutter spout at the end still works great. Any advice as to what is going on would be greatly appreciated. How are the gutters attached to side of trailer? I didn't see any holes at top of gutter where the water streaks were starting. Sorry this is long. Thanks in advance.

Same issue, but only in one spot. Been wondering about a fix also, so subscribed!

Same issue with our new Wildcat. Turns out a gutter joint wasn't siliconed at the factory. The gutters on our trailer are NOT single runs of plastic, but rather several pieces siliconed together for the run. A little dab of silicone fixed the issue immediately.

You're right...metal gutters, plastic downspouts. Same reply however....non-siliconed joint between runs.
