Side drip rail questions.. where are the screws?

2014 primetime tracer. purchased new last year.. really dumb when it comes to this. I kept my camper under pine tree all season long at a seasonal campground.. didnt relize till today that most of my gutters was clogged with pine needles most summer long(now i know to look next year).. but when talking to my dealer about winter storage the service tech told me since this gutter was clogged all summer long that more then likely standing water in those gutters would get under the screws and cause damage.. where are these screws even located? i dont see anyscrews at all along this drip edge.. I have no water issues that i know of... should I just forget about it and just keep clean next year or is this a legitimate concern now? i dont want to start tearing pieces off to find screws that more then likely are fine.... thanks...

actually, i dont think it was plugged all summer long... i cleaned those gutters out mid summer... but yes, I probably should pay more attention to them next year when under pine tree..

My trailer sits under pine trees to. I made a hook that is on a pole that I run through every so often to clean them out. Being plugged will not cause a problem except black strikes on the sides. Water will not leak in...
