2004 FR Georgetown 326ds Rain Gutters

OK, I'm a bit of a newbie. Been camping for many years, but only owned a motorhome for the last 5 or 6 years.

When it rains, I get a lot of rain runoff along the drivers side and passenger side front windows. The previous owner had some water damage in these areas which we had repaired when we purchased the motorhome about 1 1/2 years ago. I was thinking about installing some rain gutter extensions to channel the water away from the sides of the motorhome. So today I was looking at how I could do this. After looking, I don't think I have any rain gutters on this motorhome. Is that normal??? Is it normal to have gutter installed as an after market product??? Or do they typically come installed at the time of purchase?

This has probably been discussed before, but I couldn't seem to find the answer I was looking for.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

My 2012 has no rain gutters. All my water is goes whatever side is the lowest corner when it rains. This is normal in all motorhomes.
If I know rain is coming while I'm in a campground I usually raise the front higher than the back and the water then does to the rear of the motorhome.
If what you say you always have a flow on your drivers side front then that means that corner is lower than all the rest.

Thanks Iggy. I read a lot of comments about rain gutters on RVs and thought maybe I was suppose to have them and for some reason didn't.

The rain actually runs off of both the drivers and passengers front side. So I guess that just means I need to raise the front a bit more so the rain will run off of the rear or some other area.

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a piece of equipment that I was suppose to have.

Thanks again!!!

I have a 2012 337XL and it came with rain gutters and extensions. The rain runs to the end of the RV and out about 3 inches.
