Water Marks from AC

This issue may have been addressed, but I have not located yet. The condensation run off, from the AC down the front corner of the coach has streaked the paint bad. What solutions have been employed to control this and what works best to remove the streaks. I have full paint and the water runs across the black paint. As always, any assistance is appreciated.

No ideas about the condensation from the AC units. A bucket on the ground to catch the dripping is a good source of water for my dog. The black streaks can be cleaned with any of the solutions marketed as "rv black streak remover." Good wax will make the streaks easier to clean. Also, keeping the roof clean should help.

you can buy aftermarket extensions that attach to your gutters that keep the condensation runnoff from running down the side of your rig.

Hope this helps

Sounds stupid, but I use a clothespin attached to the gutter exit drain on both sides of the coach. Water (most of the time) follows the clothespin and drops free of the body.
