Gutter Spout Extensions

I have tried several brands/models of gutter spout extensions none of which seem to properly fit the ends of my MH gutters. I even had my local dealer try what they said Forest River suggested, but they would not fit.

I contacted Forest River and their suggestion was to try RV surplus websites.
If your gutters and stock short spouts look like mine, and you have successfully installed extensions, I would appreciate knowing where you got them and how they are installed.

Thank you in advance!

We all have the same short drains in the front of the Georgetown. Mine always drips on my mirrors which I have to clean regularly.
I wish Forest River would install longer ones. I also bought a set of extensions from Camping World but they will not fit my rig.
Anyone that has found a solution please show us with a picture.
Thanks.

I also had some extensions that would not fit. But I trimmed a lot off and attached them with black silicon and have no issues for the last year and a half.

I haven't had a chance to get over to our MH but I plan on just using the old fashion clothes pin method -- at least giving it a try. Cheap, and if it works, then I'm happy.

I have a 5er and was going to suggest the clothes pins also. I used the commercial kind and found that when driving into the forest or campground or the street I live on, with a lot of low hanging branches, the commercial ones would eventually loosen up and fall off. So it's clothes pins for me. They work for me although I don't know if they would clear the mirrors on a MH. Surprisingly the stay on when moving at 65 mph.

My short gutter extensions discharge the roof water on to the top of my bedroom slide. All that water goes onto the slide cover.
Brilliant design!!!

Not quite sure this will work, but you might need to be a little inventive. Depending on the size, I would buy some PVC pipe and split it. Then If it works glue it to the gutter spout after using some black plastic paint. Might work out.
