Sagging gutter

We have the wide slide version of a 24ft Sunseeker.

The entire side of the coach above the slide sags enough that the gutter has a low spot at least 3/4th inch.

Water runs out at the low spot onto the slide topper instead of out the gutter spouts. The gutter is clear.

Any ideas to fix or experience with this?? Thanks.

Question does the gutter return to normal when the slide is retracted?

Is there a metal retaining strip the entire length of the roof/sidewall? If so remove the vinyl screw cover strip and check all the Screws! Youroo! !

No it doesn’t return to level when closed and I can’t see any vinyl screw cover strip.

Thanks for responding we are in Canada and I have almost no internet access.

My husband wants to “build a wall” with butyl something on outside edge of the gutter where it’s running over, I can’t imagine how that would hold up. Or park a little off level. It’s annoying me.

I understand your limited access, but a picture or even a closeup would help others see what you are seeing.

SO...
Can you attach something like a small L-bracket under the vinyl strip that might lift and support the sagging channel? Gorilla tape works quite well even in outdoors/wet locations if you do not want to drill/screw something into the camper.

The Pic is very fuzzy but it appears your termination strip is missing the vinyl insert that covers the fasteners, it also appears the termination strip has fallen and pulled away from the Sealant! Are the Screws / Fasteners missing also? Youroo! !

I posted the picture from my phone and it seemed sharp. Now on my iPad it looks fuzzy, itís bigger. But itís a metal gutter and itís stuck or soldered very well. We canít find any vinyl strips or screws or anything to fix or straighten.

We went to the dealer the other day and my husband took a picture of a new Sunseeker gutter that was straight as a arrow and showed the service manager that picture and our gutter. He said he never saw a crooked gutter like ours. Itís just crooked and we will watch to see if it gets worse over time. My husband is still scheming to build a wall.

My husband built a “centipede” of 1/2 inch PVC 15 feet long! He slides it in under the topper on top of slide, below the topper. It really keeps the water from collecting on the topper and it’s rained quite a bit here. I thought he had lost his mind but this seems to work. Since the gutter is lacking, this will help prevent the topper from failing.

Me again about saggy gutter. What about weight of the air conditioner on the roof with no support on that side? I believe thatís it.

Building in a big beam would add too much weight.
