Need to solve a problem. Any ideas?

I am looing for a mod that can help solve a problem. I was recently camping with the family. I was cooking at the outdoor kitchen. When suddenly and unexpectedly it started to rain. I found out the hard way that when the outdoor kitchen is open and it is raining the rain can fall in between the outdoor kitchen roof and the side of the camper. I am trying to think of a mod that can help with this problem and still be functional when on the move and look good when the kitchen is closed. Has anyone come up with a way to solve this problem? Thank uou for all and any ideas.

Awning? Either one of the slide ons like used on tent trailers,,or a roll up like your main awning.

Maybe a section of that vinyl shower door flap that goes on the bottom of glass doors could be installed over the hinge along the top of the door for your outside kitchen.....

Is the 'roof' you are referring to simply the outside storage door to the kitchen in the raised position?

How about a patio awning on side of the camper where the kitchen is?

Just a cheap idea... Cut a piece of flexible L shaped rubber to length. Should act like a gutter. When not in use throw it inside the outdoor kitchen.

Come back and post your solution...

I would say a 1/2" wide piece of rubber the length of the door over the hinge would work. I would say either double sticky back tape of silicone would keep it in place.

Or a piece of weatherstrip

Had the same problem with my OD kitchen. My thought ( although haven't had time to try it) was to add a "C"-track to the side of the trailer just above the door opening. Then have a small awning made that could slide into the track and extend to the open end of the door where it could be attached with snaps or bungees. It could easily be removed when not needed and during travel. The track would blend in well with the top of the door frame.

You are thinking like me.
That's why I asked the question about what the 'roof' was exactly.

I think the OP is referring to the lift up kitchen door.
