26dbh gutter issue

Any ideas of what to do about leaking gutters where they attempted to connect 2 pieces so the gutter runs the length of the TT? They have a glob of sealant sitting in there that obviously doesn't work on both sides.

butyl tape the sections together? I think I have the same problem on my awning side....my LED's went out at that spot and i've had water dripping down there too.

It's happening on both sides of the camper with the back side running directly onto the slide out, which scares me.

Maybe a thin piece of EPDM flashing glued to the inside of the gutter a couple inches each way of the joint would work too. It's thin and meant to keep water out

Thanks for the post. I noticed mine was leaking a little on the curb side. Guess I'd better look into it...

I called my dealership, which is 2.5 hrs away, and they said all they do is pull off the sealant and do it again...said I can do that. He said that's probably the biggest reason for calls with new campers because the manufacturer just globs it on without checking if it's actually sealed.

All I did was seal mine and do a better job of making sure it was actually sealed.

What kind of sealant did you use? Mine is doing the same thing.

If that was to me, just the geocel I used to seal the seams with.

Common issue. I have it on mine. Have not fixed yet. Going to see if I dig it off and try flex seal.
