Adding gutters

In the process of adding gutters to our 2016 Challenger 37 KT. Pretty straightforward. However, unsure of how to work around the toppers and awnings on the passenger side. Any experience or suggestions appreciated.

I installed EZE glue on gutters to my 2015 Hurricane and not problems at all. Had to take off the old trim, clean very very well with 70% iso alcohol and stuck right on. Been on going on 2.5 years now and just as tight as the day I placed them on.

Did not have to alter the straight line at all over the slide as it was above and straight.

Wish they made end caps though!

Gutters help direct condensation from AC and stop it from running down the windows or sides of your coach. I had gutters on my last two coaches, just haven't gotten around to adding on current coach, but probably will eventually.

They do. I added these to my "stick-on" gutters and they work great. They do have to be secured with screws though.

By controlling the run-off; is that helping to keep the rig looking a bit cleaner?

EZE gutter product do not have end caps for their particular product!
I have placed the generic end caps/extensions on there but they are much wider and do not line up perfectly.

No screws at all - they tape is industrial grade! Quality product!

Yes, especially the windows! Your roof is most likely dirty unless you was it frequently. AC condensation picks up your roof dirt and then politely deposits it on your windows or the side of your coach, which is why you see streaks on windows and sides.

Ok guys, as promised here are pics from the gutter project. I added silicone to each area joint at the drip spouts. Once it hardens, I'll clean it up a little. On the entry side, I had to work the gutter between the slide topper and front awning. Doable, but tricky. Highly suggest a helper for this 2 hour project. Click image for larger version
