Gutter Extensions

We have a 2011 SP260 that we purchased earlier this year. I purchased the little plastic gutter extensions/drip rail extensions to minimize the black streaks but I cant get them to fit on this trailer. I had the same things on our previous motorhome and they just snapped on very easily. The gutters on the Surveyor seem a little different design. Are the gutters different or I missing something? Anyone get them to fit on?

Gutter extensions

Had the same problem with the Flagstaff we just bought. The place we bought ours from have white plastic clothes pins on all their trailers on the lot. We asked what they were for and they told us they use them for gutter extensions. It actually works. Haven't had any black streaks yet.

I bought some of the snap-on gutter extensions, and I had to alter them to make them fit on my Surveyor....and they soon broke. I ended up getting the kind that are replacements for the OEM gutter ends.

Something like this but from my local RV dealer: Camco Mfg Inc - RV Gutter Spouts with Extensions, 4pk - Awning Accessories - Camping World

Our TT came with them. But turns out that the one above the outside kitchen would drip water on you if you're standing near the outside kitchen. So we bought a length of clear plastic tubing and slipped it over the end of the gutter extension, channeling the water to the back of the TT. Works great!

Like Yelwarc, we just use clothes pins. Super cheap, very effective. If you lose one, it is no big deal.
