Gutter Extensions

What does anyone do with the gutter extensions when covering a travel trailer? Last year my extensions poked holes in all four corners of the cover.

Tape some swimming pool noodles or pipe insulation on them prior to installing the cover.

I don't cover, but I've heard that people cut a slit in a tennis ball and put that over them.

Noodle Drain Covers

The orange noodles are great, the hole in the center is very small and slides up on the drain very tight. We have tried the other colors and shapes, but this particular orange odd shaped noodle works the best and stays on no matter what:

I use noodles and tennis balls. Never had an issue getting holes in the cover.

Covered the trailer yesterday. I went with the tennis balls on the gutter extensions. Seemed to work well. However, we have high winds in northeast Ohio today. Hope all still looks well on Monday.
